板金用CO_2レーザー加工機の現状と将来動向 Recent Progress of CO_2 Laser Sheet-Metal Cutting Systems
Recent progress of CO<SUB>2</SUB> laser sheet-metal cutting systems is described. The CO<SUB>2</SUB> laser is still the front-runner for industrial laser market, however more than two decades have passed since the CO<SUB>2</SUB> laser cutting system entered the market. The power scaling of laser oscillator has enhanced the productivity of systems, and the advance of the processing technology has drastically improved the cutting quality. We believe that the CO<SUB>2</SUB> laser cutting systems will be more practical industrial tools by continuous developments for wide range of applications.
