High-Power Lasers and Industry 4.0: Focusing on Knowledge

A new measurement procedure allows for the fast and contact-free measurement of the focused laser beam. At the same time, modern measuring devices have Profinet interfaces and allow the processes to be documented. These are enormous advantages, especially in times of just-in-time production. The challenge – everything has to fit perfectly Automated laser welding is…

On-demand Webinar: High Power laser measurement challenges and solutions

Monitoring laser behavior in high-power applications is critical to keeping your process running properly. However, that monitoring – the laser measurement itself – is not trivial. There are many “little things” one could do that might unknowingly mess with the measurement, or even damage the instrument. For example: • At what point should the cooling…
