Paper Abstract

The use of high-speed lasercutting developed for apparel manufacturing applications is now finding a place in the industrial manufacturing sector. Non-metal structural materials such as boron epoxy, graphite epoxy, Kevlar, etc., difficult to cut by conventional means, can be efficiently cut into uniquely shaped parts with an edge quality previously not possible. The advent of high-powered industrial lasers combined with advanced positioning techniques to opening a vast new market in metals fabricating. In many applications, lasercutting can be economically justified to replace conventional stamping or routing.
