Importance of product-lifecycle-management (PLM) increased in production engineering during the last years. Environmental as well as economic constraints account for intensified efforts in recycling and
substitution of non-environmental friendly products. For example, Polyurethane (PU) foams should be replaced with non-woven fabrics. Unfortunately, unlike foams, such non-woven fabrics exhibit limited
possibilities in molding operations. Material removal by means of laser processing offers a possibility in a partial replacement of difficult moldings. Experiments of CO2-laser processing of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) are presented. Laser parameters like beam shape, intensity distribution and process gases have been
varied to optimise results.
