We see constant innovation in technology and major improvements in our daily tools and machines. Technology is in constant race to get better than yesterday. It has been amazing upwards trend in technology over last 20 years to the level of \"space time\". One of the major technology development area is in the laser field. Although laser technology has been out there for many years, We have seen tremendous new laser applications recently. We are taking advantage of laser technology in all aspects of our life. As long as we we use its precise and right parametric range, we get very valuable results. We have studied the use of laser in cutting metals in indutry and leveraged various studies in this field. We have perfomed our experiments by using 10mm thick steel with 8 different properties. We have analyzed the kerf depth, perpendicularity, surface rouhgness and cutting speeds parameters in different materials in our experiment. As our great leader Ataturk has said we need to focus on science and technology to be in the highly civilezed nation level. Each of us should do our best to get this goal.
