BeamWatch for Additive Manufacturing

March 9, 2018
Ophir® BeamWatch® AM is the industry's first non-contact laser beam monitoring system for additive manufacturing. It’s a lightweight, compact system for real-time measurement of focal shift during laser startup of powder bed fusion manufacturing processes. It measures key beam size, position, and quality parameters, including focus spot size and beam caustic, for more consistent metallurgy.
