Ophir-Spiricon to showcase non-contact beam monitoring system at Fabtech 2016

Oct. 28, 2016
The BeamWatch non-contact beam monitoring system is designed for use with high-power YAG, fiber, and diode lasers used in industrial material processing applications.

The BeamWatch non-contact beam monitoring system is designed for use with high-power YAG, fiber, and diode lasers used in industrial material processing applications. Unlike conventional measurement systems that place a probe in the beam, causing potential damage and slowing the measurement process by up to 2 min., BeamWatch measures the Rayleigh scatter of the beam, so there is no contact and therefore no power restrictions—the system has been used on high-power lasers up to 100kW. It measures key beam size, position, and quality parameters, including focus spot size, waist width, and beam propagation parameter (M2). High-magnification optics dynamically measure beams with spot sizes down to 55µm, allowing for instant readings and, therefore, rapid correction of large area cosine changes.
