Laser machining - metal - with yag-laser - 200w power (laser machining - metal - with YAG-laser - 200W power)

Emission factor summary

Emissions generated by the activity within the product supply chain as described in ecoinvent v3.10. This is delivering the service of 'laser machining metal with YAG-laser 200W power'. Laser machining is used to cut drill weld or engrave metals. This type of laser is YAG laser a solid state laser that operates in pulsed or in a continuous laser beam with a power of 200W. The service represents the operation of a YAG laser used in a semi-automatic machine processing 2D or 3D pieces in 100% power for 1 hour. It does not include the input of the material processed nor infrastructure. Thus they have to be added separately. Laser cutting is primarily used on sheets of metals or cutting of non-flat objects while it can also weld aluminium titanium carbon steel and stainless steel. The cut-off classification is allocatable product. The activity type is ordinary transforming activity. The reference product amount is 1.
