Abstract
In the field of the EUREKA program n° 249 which relates to high power YAG lasers, L'AIR LIQUIDE studies the comparative performances of C02 and YAG lasers in the cutting and welding of materials. Stainless steel cutting is the second step of those comparative studies. The experiments have been done on a 1 ,5 kW continuous wave ( CW) C02 laser and on a pulsed 600 W YAG laser, prototype of the 1 kW series that LUMONICS is launching now ( 1) , ( 2) ( see C02 and YAG lasers p . 9 top fig .1).
