Paper Abstract

Results of experiments on gas-laser cutting of composition glasses three ply using emission of an electric discharge close circuit subsonic CO laser are presented. The parameters of the experimental arrangement are given. It is shown that satisfactory results for division of three ply glass with thickness about 7 mm are obtained when the rate of stretching is 2 m/min and output power is 400 W. Cw supersonic e-beam sustained CO laser (SS CO EIL) was shown to be the most effective and compact among all high power lasers. Experimental testing proved that we have in possession the technical solution enabling to construct technological supersonic e-beam sustained cw closed-cycle CO laser with the power of several hundred kilowatts and wall plug efficiency being more than 20% (power supply from AC-net and water cooling).
