Emergence of advanced engineering materials, stringent design requirements, intricate shape and unusual size of workpiece restrict the use of conventional machining methods. Laser Beam Machining (LBM) is one of the advance manufacturing processes which are used for shaping almost whole range of engineering materials. The present work deals with the study of varying pressure and traverse speed by CO2 lasers for cutting the acrylic material and the attempt is made to develop a model to predict the depth of cut for 25 watt machine. The variation pattern for cutting depth is discussed about the convergence of predicted and experimental results.
