Paper Title:
Cooling Effects in Laser Forming
  Abstract

In the laser forming of metal plates, there is a substantial waiting time required for cooling down the workpiece so that a steep temperature gradient can be reestablished during the next scan. Currently, there are no standard techniques that can be used to reduce this waiting time. This paper discusses the possibility of using non-natural cooling systems to cool down the workpiece. A numerical model of thermo-mechanical analyses with moving boundary conditions to simulate the traveling of laser beam and moving forced water cooling system is presented. Based on the proposed model, cooling effects under different laser powers and scanning velocities with various cooling conditions are investigated. The results show that the forced water cooling can significantly reduce the temperature with no adverse effect on the forming of plates.
