Reducing Production Waste with Laser Profiling and Characterization

A laser profiling system can characterize and identify which variables affect product quality and waste.
But many laser users have never evaluated the quality of the beam beyond the initial delivery. This leads to frequent process adjustments to try to get back to “normal” and frantic calls to outside laser services.

Can a Simple Sensor Really Replace a Laser Beam Profiler?

So you need to profile your laser beam but are worried about the cost of a beam profiler? Or maybe you just think it will be too complex for your technicians?
BeamTrack is a laser power sensor that also measures beam size (PPS version only) and position (all versions).
My question: Can you use BeamTrack as an alternative to a full laser beam profiler?

Sort of.

It really depends on what you need to measure.

Finding the center of the NanoScan

Finding the mechanical location of your laser beam can be important in some applications.

Using a NanoScan (Scanning Slit Beam Profiling) you can find a mechanical location of the center of your beam by following these steps:

A Leader’s tip: This is how Ophir Spiricon determines its products’ dynamic range

I guess the first question that comes to mind while reading this week’s blog title would be – “What’s dynamic range anyway?” or “Why is it so important to state it right?”
By the end of this post you’ll be fully exposed to the importance of stating your dynamic range right…So, stay tuned!

Assuring Correct Metallurgy in Direct Laser Melting

Additive manufacturing has restructured prototyping, development, and advanced design of mechanical components. Direct Metal Laser Melting, also known as Selective Laser Sintering or 3D Metal Printing, is quickly becoming the standard for designs that cannot be fabricated with traditional metal removal techniques. To create consistent, strong structures using laser-based additive manufacturing processes that meet flyable DOD standards or FDA requirements, the metallurgy must be consistent. In addition, a laser beam of known dimension, power density, and focal spot location is required.
