Abstract
In this work we investigate the dynamic effects occurring during laser cutting of sheet metal. In particular, we focus on the ejection of droplets of molten material on the lower side of the workpiece and the impact of surface tension of the molten material on this process. We also point out how this influences the formation of striations on the cut kerf and other quality defects.
