Abstract

Fiber Laser Cutting is non-conventional machining process in which laser is generated and highly intense laser impinge onto the surface of the material to cut. Fiber laser cutting is newly developed process which is modified from simple laser cutting. Due to using fiber optics there is less power loss as compared to the laser cutting. Nitrogen and oxygen gases are used as the assist gas. This paper enlightens on analysis of operating power, focal point and cutting speed on the performance parameters such as surface roughness, kerf width and bending force while using oxygen as the assist gas.
