Paper Abstract

Folded quasi-sealed-off CO2 laser units of both 1000W continuous wave and 500W mechanically Q-switched are presented. Their characteristics are high beam quality, high reliability, economy, easy to operate and maintain, and acceptable workshop floor area required. The CW laser is used for cutting and welding of thin metal sheets. The Q- switched laser is mainly used for crack-free cutting of hard and brittle material such as engineering ceramics.
