Abstract

The fundamental characteristics of laser cutting for thin copper plate by a Q-switched single-mode fiber laser were experimentally investigated, and the effects of the nozzle shape on cutting results were also discussed. High speed cutting of 29 nun s could be carried out with a newly designed nozzle, since high assist gas pressure could be supplied on the workpiece without MSD. Nozzle Laval 800 makes it possible to cut more efficient, since the melted material in the kerf decreases compared to a traditional convergent nozzle. Using a Q-switched single-mode fiber laser, the kerf is very fine, and color change around the kerf is hardly observed by oxidation due to little heat conduction from dross. Therefore, it proved to be available in cutting of thin metal plate.
