Polyoxymethylene (POM), also known as Delrin, Acetal,Polyacetal and Polyformaldehyde, is an engineering thermoplastic used in a wide variety of industrial applications. Its nice mechanical properties and low friction makes it suitable for everything from automation components, gears, bushings, mechanical parts and much more.

When laser cutting POM an ok edge is produced with some signs of burning and a small edge of slag is left on the underside of the part.
