Part-on-part nesting capabilities optimizes material use,
reducing material waste, and increasing cost-effectiveness.
Stacking or nesting optimizes material and can significantly
reduce cutting times.
A solid-state laser of Neodymium glass offering high power
or short pulses, or both, for specific industrial applications.
A solid-state laser of Neodymium:Yttrium-Aluminum Garnet,
similar to the Nd:glass laser. Both are pumped by flashlamp.
Beam transmission is via fiber optics. Power is up to 4,000
watts. The wavelength is 1.06 micrometers. Nd:YAG laser light
can perform finer detail work and is better suited for work
on highly reflective materials than CO2 laser light. See CO2
Laser and Nd:Glass Laser.
Nickel alloys include a variety of metals such as Monels,
Inconels, Nimonics, Hastalloys, and Renes. These metals are
cut in ways similar to stainless steels. Nitrogen is often
used as a cutting gas to achieve a metallurgically pure edge.
Nominal Hazard Zone (NHZ)
The nominal hazard zone describes the space within which
the level of the direct, reflected, or scattered radiation
during normal operation exceeds the applicable MPE. Exposure
levels beyond the boundary of the NHZ are below the appropriate
MPE level. See Maximum
An element of Gas Jet
used for cutting. The nozzle is used to constrict and direct
the assist gas to produce a columnar flow. The flow of gas
serves to push the molten metal through the kerf.
Nozzles vary in shape and exit orifice. (Common orifice diameters
are 0.040" and 0.060".)
