Novel Beam Diagnostics Improve Laser Additive Manufacturing

Laser additive manufacturing (LAM) is rapidly becoming an important method for the fabrication of both prototype and production metal parts. This document examines the need for laser beam characterization to deliver optimum results in LAM, and then shows how a new beam monitoring technology, developed by Haas Laser Technologies and Coherent, enables rapid measurements in laser-based 3D manufacturing systems.
