Abstract

The report considers the possibility of using laser technology for neoprene engraving and cutting. This modern material is a type of synthetic rubber with great strain resistance, general durability and excellent temperature insulation properties. This study uses a CO2 laser system SUNTOP ST-CC 9060 with a wavelength of 10640 nm with a goal to achieve the best engraving and cutting quality of the material and Zwick / Roell machine for testing the samples. As a result of experimental studies, power density and processing speed parameters were optimized for high – quality engraving and cutting of the neoprene.
