Updating software for older beam profilers: When quality becomes a challenge

We attach great importance to quality when developing and producing our measurement technology. And to great effect: With proper handling and regular maintenance, many of our measuring devices can continue to be used long past the expected end of their service life. However, this longevity can become a real challenge for some beam profilers that…
