Experiment Study on Nd: YAG Pulsed Laser Cutting Carbon Fibers Composites
Nd:YAG pulsed laser cutting carbon fibers reinforced epoxy resins composites was studied. HAZ and kerf width was made as evaluation index, as well as laser pulse energy, cutting speed, pulse duration and assistant gas pressure was made as controlled parameters. Ideal quality of cutting can be achieved by adjusting those parameters. The effect of each parameter was analyzed.
