This paper provides a concise overview of the manufacturing principles of metal processing lasers. Metal processing lasers are advanced tools used in various manufacturing industries for cutting, welding, and shaping metal materials. The presented highlights include the fundamental principles governing laser-based metal processing techniques, including laser beam generation, focusing, and interaction with metal surfaces. It also emphasizes the importance of precise control parameters, such as power, pulse duration, and wavelength, to achieve optimal processing results. Understanding these principles is crucial for enhancing productivity, quality, and efficiency in metal manufacturing processes.
