This paper covers the cutting of commercially-available ceramic tiles using a CO2 laser cutting machine, with the object of producing a laser beam machining (LBM) database that contains the essential parameter information for their successful processing. Various laser cutting parameters were investigated that would generate a cut in ceramic tile which required minimal post-treatment. The effects of various shield gases, of multi-pass cutting and of underwater cutting were also examined. © 1998 Elsevier Science S.A. All rights reserved.
