CARBON BUILD FROM LASER CUTTING.


1999

In a previous letter I asked about cleaning of the carbon build on the edges of our laser cut steel parts. I was wondering if anyone has used nitrogen in place of the oxygen on the laser? does this eliminate the carbon build? Will this reduce production any? If nitrogen is not the answer can we play with the power and speed and reduce the carbon build on mild steel parts? And YES I agree the sales rep's for the laser's should be up front about this problem! Help if you can... Thanks
