Fiber laser cutters are known for their quick speed in cutting metal sheet with high precision and cutting quality. Usually, thinner metal sheets mean easier cutting processes. However, there are some exceptions to this.
The fiber laser cutter is often used to cut metal sheet. It's quick and simple to cut when the thickness of the sheet is 1mm, but it's not so easy when the thickness is 0.08mm because the sheet is too thin to fix the residual parts in actual operation. This negatively affects the cutting precision. Controlling the sheet by manpower is also not a good choice because you lose precision and it poses a danger to the operator.
Some suggested that stacking thin sheets and cutting them would solve this problem, but the cutting accuracy would only be guaranteed for the top layer as waste residue would be deposited on lower layers. We cannot conclude that there is no positive correlation between sheet thickness and simplicity in processing using fiber laser cutters. That is to say, the cutting process may not always be easier when metal sheet is thinner.
