Exact cuts with a laser: recognizing and compensating for thermal focus shift

Messer Cutting Systems uses Ophir BeamWatch for non-contact measurement of the laser beam

Precise cuts, sophisticated component geometries, limited material melt – the advantages of laser cutting are numerous. And due to the steady increases in laser power, these advantages can now benefit a range of new applications: fusion cutting is more attractive for structural steel, and thinner materials can be cut significantly faster and more efficiently than ever. These advancements are also reflected in the Messer Cutting Systems portfolio. As a global provider of products and services for the metalworking industry, the company increasingly relies on high-performance fiber lasers for its cutting systems.
