Pyrometric Monitoring of Gas-Assisted Cutting of Steel Using Fiber Laser
AbstractMeasurements of the temperature in zone of action of laser radiation on the molten metal have been performed. The results are reported for different speed of cutting of mild-steel plate of 3 mm-thick with high-power fiber laser; oxygen was used as an assisted gas. Researches demonstrate that fluctuations of local temperature are related to unequal radiation absorption that associates with local deformations of surface of melt. Thus noise spectrum of those fluctuations reflects turbulent surface deformation caused by gas jet and capillary waves. The standard temperature deviation does not exceed 10 K on the frequency of 7 KHz and above, and power law of spectrum of density of fluctuations of local temperature is about “-2.8” in range of capillary turbulence. Thus we can distinguish radiation pulsation due to laser cutting from other processes of radiation affection to the sample, including unwanted, degrading the quality of technological operations. The results of investigation can be useful for monitoring laser cutting process.
