"Agility" - Complexity description in a new dimension applied for laser cutting


How to describe or to compare the complexity of industrial upcoming part geometries in laser-cutting? This question is essential for defining machine dynamics or kinematic structures for efficient use of the technological cutting-potential which is given by modern beam sources. Solid-state lasers as well as CO2 lasers offer, especially in thin materials, the opportunity of high cutting velocities. Considering the mean velocity on cutting geometries, it is significantly below the technological limitations. The characterization of cutting geometries by means of the agility as well as the application for laser-cutting will be introduced. The identification of efficient dynamic constellations will be shown as basic principle for designing future machine structures
