- Laser cutting is often used in industry to cut steels sections, particularly to complex geometries. It is believed that the chemistry of the steel has an influence on the ease with which the steel can be cut. This project investigates the relationship between composition, microstructure and cutting performance with the aim of determining which steels are more readily cut and the reasons for this observation.
