Article Preview

This paper indicates the experiments of YAG laser cutting soda-lime glass with controlled fracture. The qualities of glass obtained by laser cutting and mechanical cutting are compared. The impact of laser power, scanning speed and spot size on the cutting quality is studied and the optimum laser parameters are given. Finally the experiments of laser cutting two-layer glasses, glass tube and laser cutting in curve paths are carried out. The results show that good cutting quality of glass can be acquired by YAG laser cutting.
