Experimental Investigation into Pulsed Nd:YAG Laser Micro-Turning of Engineering Ceramics
Laser beam machining (LBM) is the most exciting thermal energy based non-contact type advanced material machining method to process almost whole range of materials. The laser microturning of ceramics are highly demanded in the present industries because of its wide and potential uses in various engineering fields such as automobile, electronics, aerospace, biomedical applications etc. The present paper addresses the basic experimental study of Nd:YAG laser microturning of advanced engineering cylindrical shaped ceramic material to explore the desired laser output responses i.e. depth of cut and surface roughness by varying laser micro-turning process parameters such as lamp current, pulse frequency and rotational speed of workpiece etc.
