A Beginner’s Guide to Laser Beam Profiling

Let’s be honest.

We’d all just prefer that our lasers always worked exactly as they’re supposed to.

Who really wants to measure their laser, when they can just be using it instead?

However, like all processes, a laser must be controlled to be used efficiently, and it must be measured to be controlled (and used) properly.

How to Calculate Laser Beam Size

Gaussian laser beams don’t have a simple cut-and-dry beam width.

If you’re not familiar with the math behind a “Gaussian” you might wonder why this would be. Here’s why:

How to Keep Your Industrial Laser Process Running Smoothly

Lasers are made of matter – of stuff.

And anything made of matter will degrade with time.

So if the laser degradation and eventual failure is inevitable, what can be done?

How to Find the Perfect Laser Beam Profiler

I wish I could tell you that there is one super-profiler, and it will profile any laser with 100% accuracy! Of course that’s a pipe dream. There are tons of different laser types, so it stands to reason that we’ll need several different profilers to cover the range of lasers.  There are cameras and scanning slit…

How to Profile Large, Small, and High Power Laser Beams

Don’t you wish there was a one size fits all beam profiler? I know I do. Problem is that the very thing that makes a beam profiler so perfect for one laser renders it useless for a different laser. At risk of overcomplicating matters, we like to provide our customers with maximum flexibility.  So you…

How to Increase Laser Welding Efficiency and Reduce Scrap

Stop me when this sounds familiar. Your laser welding system is not producing the quality welds you expected. You know what your laser’s power density should be and where the laser should be focused, but you never know what it actually is, or where it’s really focused. Contact us
