work, the effects of process parameters such as laser output power, beam
diameter and scan speed and also sheet thickness on the bending angle have been
numerically investigated in the laser bending process. For this purpose, Abaqus
software is used for investigating the effect of various process and sheet
parameters on the bending angle. The results show that with increasing the
laser output power, bending angle is increased. Also, the bending angle is
decreased with increasing the beam diameter, scan speed and sheet thickness.
