The metallic is heated and burnt by the laser beam, cutting the metallic sheet. The high quality of the sting can be mirror clean and a precision of round zero.1 mm (0.0039 in) can be obtained. Cutting speeds vanity fair panty sizing chart on thin 1.2 mm (0.047 in) sheet can be as excessive as 25 m per minute. Most laser cutting methods use a CO2 based mostly laser source with a wavelength of round 10µm; some more recent methods use a YAG based mostly laser with a wavelength of round 1 µm.
