    Processing composite materials with lasers
    Composite materials, consisting of fibers and binders of natural and artificial origin, are increasingly used in various fields of industry. Processing of the obtained materials into finished forms is often difficult and expensive. Treatment of composite materials, such as milling, cutting, or grinding, is currently dominant. At present, lasers are increasingly used in production processes. It should be noted that modern industrial production is unthinkable without the use of laser equipment. However, when using lasers, initial adjustment of their laser parameters is required for optimal material processing. When considering different lasers and materials to be processed, the setting parameters are different and the obtained processing quality is varied. In the research, samples of composite materials have been made, consisting of epoxy resin as a binder and hemp, flax, and carbon fibers as reinforcing materials. The obtained composite materials have been studied with fiber laser for their processing quality.
