Paper Title:
Quality Analysis of Pulsed Laser Cutting of Superalloy Sheet
  Abstract

This paper presents the experiments of Nd:YAG pulsed laser cutting of GH3536 superalloy sheet and investigates the influences of different cutting parameters on laser cut quality factors including recast layer, kerf width and dross formation. The results show that the recast layer possesses finer granularity and higher hardness than those of the matrix, and the thickness of recast layer increases with increased pulse energy and decreases as the cutting speed and gas pressure increase. Oxygen-assisted cutting comes with thick recast layers and argon-assisted cutting acquires thin layers. The low-strength oxide layer worsens the kerf surfaces in oxygen-assisted cutting while argon-assisted cutting produces unaffected surface quality and is suitable for applications with subsequent welding.
