Optimisation of Laser assisted turning on hardened steel

Laser assisted turning procedures after hardening were developed for the part selected in the project. The very high hardness of the surface could be softened by heating and maybe by tempering effects preceding the use of the cutting tool. The material thus becomes soft and can be turned using cheap cutting tools as used in soft turning.
