Ruby is one of the frequently used host materials in this type of laser.
A Ruby Laser is a type of the solid state laser whose laser medium is a synthetic ruby crystal.
Lasers can be used to change the surface properties of a workpiece.
Laser beam machining can also be used in conjunction with traditional machining methods.
YAG is an abbreviation for yttrium aluminum garnet which are crystals that are used for solid-state lasers while Nd: YAG refers to neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet crystals that are used in the solid-state lasers as the laser medium.
In excimer lasers, the state is different than in solid state or gas lasers.
The appliance of laser beam machining varies depending on the industry.
For instance, materials that cannot be cut by a gas laser may be cut by an excimer laser.
Laser beams can be paired with gases to help the cutting process be more efficient, help minimize oxidization of surfaces, and/or keep the workpiece surface free from melted or vaporized material.
Laser beam machining (LBM) is a non-traditional subtractive manufacturing process, a form of machining, in which a laser is directed towards the work piece for machining.
This process uses thermal energy to remove material from metallic or nonmetallic surfaces.In the electronic industry laser beam machining is used for wire stripping and skiving of circuits.
