Methods for the machining of metals based on the use of ultra-short pulsed laser radiation continue to gain importance in industrial production technology. Theoretical considerations and experimental studies on laser drilling of steel are discussed. The applicability of geometrical optics to calculate the absorbed energy distribution inside small blind holes is investigated theoretically. A model for melt transport during ultra-short pulsed drilling is proposed and verified experimentally. It confirms that helical drilling is advantageous for machining burr-free holes.
