Abstract
The fundamentals of laser remote cutting will be introduced as well as a comparison to the conventional laser fusion cutting process. The opportunities and limitations of this alternative laser cutting technology will be discussed in detail by means of recent application examples. Here to name cutting of typical punching and bending parts, battery foils, metals foams and electrical steel sheets. Questions that are concerning the cutting thickness, the cutting quality, the cycle time, and the impact on the material will be answered. Finally, conclusions and an outlook on future developments will be presented.
