Manufacturing Trends Drive Advancements in Laser Beam Measurement Technology

Lasers are increasingly used in advanced applications, from mapping objects in front of vehicles thousands of times per sec to pointing multiple kW of light at a flying object to disable it. Let's look at the trends in measuring laser performance.

Products to measure the performance of lasers were first employed by sophisticated laser users who had a strong understanding of the behavior of light and what to expect from the measurements that were produced. As laser applications have evolved, so has the typical laser user. Lasers are becoming more commonplace. As a result, developers of these laser-based products now realize the importance of measuring the laser’s performance.

  • How to accurately measure laser performance in challenging situations
  • How Additive Manufacturing requires consistent laser performance over relatively long periods of time, especially during the build of larger parts that use exotic metals
  • How to tell if the laser is failing to perform consistently and, therefore, risking materials not properly joining
