AbstractWhile developments in the field of diode pumped solid state lasers provide a foundation for precision machining of parts with high accuracy and small feature sizes, this promise can not be realized without considering the interactions of individual processes, systems and material parameters. This paper presents our results on the precision machining of small features in various materials using diode pumped solid state lasers. The machined features are characterized geometrically by using optical inspection techniques and the tolerance data is analyzed statistically. Machining parameters relevant to motion system and tool path compensation are discussed along with their relevance to machined feature geometry. The effect of laser beam polarization on the machined kerf width, kerf surface and feature dimensions is reported.
