Paper Abstract

Significant design improvements in the pulsing capability of CO2 lasers have led to improved machining results not achievable in CW operation. Pulses on the order of 8 times the CW rating lead to efficient material processing while cutting heat input significantly. CO2 lasers with lower-than-expected CW ratings can be used to provide for more economical machining.
