RE: cutting conditions for 5/16 aluminum "FO3015 Amada laser?

I agree with maayhemm's recommendations with the only variable being the focus point in relation to the material.  In thick aluminum cutting (specially anything thicker than 0.25") you want to have a shallow focus point in order to not only cut but pierce easier as well.  The dross on the material will be longer (almost shark-teeth like) but will be easier to remove.  I would recommend cutting it with nitrogen although shop-air does well on this material but the oxygen percentage in it will make the dross a bit harder to remove.

I would certainly use a 4.0mm double-nozzle as well.

Good Luck.
