The thermal cutting with laser allows three possible cuttings, which mainly differ in the removal of the material. If the material is mainly vaporized, then this procedure is called laser sublimation cutting according DIN 2310 (German Engineering Standardization); if however the material is melted and the melted mass is removed by a gas jet, then this process is called laser melt cutting. If an exothermic chemical transformation of the material takes place , e.g. oxydation, then the process is called oxy-laser cutting.
