Experimental laser cutting work has been performed on a commonly used sheet aluminium alloy to establish an approximate relationship between maximum laser cutting speed and the thickness of an anodized layer on the surface of the material. Results show a very significant increase in maximum speed, which is maintained even with increasing thickness of the anodized layer well beyond that at which maximum beam absorption is thought to occur.
