One major key theme in modern industry applications is light weight design . For new materials, innovative production processes has to be devised in order to increase the throughput as well as flexibility and decrease the costs. Traditional cutting techniques such as milling and grinding depict a slow cutting speed and lead to unfavorable surface defects [2, 3]. These defects interfere with the provided properties of the foam material. Therefore, an alternative separation technology has to be applied in order to overcome these challenges. In case of open cell metal foams, laser technology plays a leading role in manufacturing processes, specifically in the event of separation and contouring. Remote laser cutting delivers solutions to the upcoming challenges concerning contour flexibility, component accuracy, high material throughput and decreased thermally affected zone. This study reveals the high potential concerning cutting speed of nickel base foam, which was increased more than 500 % compare to the state of the art laser cutting processes. In addition, foam components show a perpendicular edge and an open cell behavior after the separation process. Due to the physical principle of remote laser cutting, melt attachments were smaller than 10 µm in diameter. Moreover, the contour accuracy reaches process tolerances of less than 50 µm. This enables the remote laser cutting to produce foam components with industrial specifications. This poster offers insight into the viability of remote laser cutting of nickel based open cell foams for chemical applications.
