Abstract
The experience on replacement of the conventional methods of manufacturing thin-sheet parts for aircraft plants in favor of laser cutting is being systemized. In particular, the consideration is being given to the technological problems of manufacturing figured spacers of foil and thin stainless steel having the thickness from 0.05 to 0.5 mm, and ribbed plates of thin corrugated aluminum. The use was made of the automated system built around a 400 W solid-sate YAG laser. The optimum processing conditions were found for attaining the required quality of laser cutting. The peculiarities and technological methods of the specific parts manufacturing are being described.
