Part 2 of this paper details an experimentally-based method to evaluate the power distribution for both CW and PM cutting. Variations in power distribution with different cutting speeds, material thickness and pulse ratios are presented. The paper also provides information on both the cutting efficiency and absorptivity index for MDF, and comments on the beam dispersion characteristics after the cutting process.
