Webinar: Managing Laser Degradation in Industrial ApplicationsOwned and produced by Photonics Media

Lasers are made of physical matter. Therefore, the natural degradation of their materials can cause variability in performance. Aging optics often cause slow changes in laser behavior and, when left unchecked, these changes can lead to loss of process efficiency. An unclean process environment can quickly change a laser’s behavior through thermal lensing, which is caused by debris collected on laser optics.

Webinar: How Do You Know Your AM Laser is Performing to Spec?

Webinar was hosted by 3d Metal Printing Magazine presented by Kevin D. Kirkham, Senior Manager Business Development for Ophir at MKS Instruments and John McCauley, Business Development Manager for Ophir at MKS Instruments

Webinar with Laser Focus World: Laser Myths: What You Don't Know Can Hurt Your Process

Like any other machine tool, the technologies surrounding the laser system have advanced significantly over the past several decades. However, there are still many myths surrounding the employment, operation, and maintenance of an industrial laser. These can cause a laser operator to be lulled into a false sense of security and form bad habits when it comes to maintaining a consistent laser process.

Webinar with Laser Focus World: Glass cutting and micro-welding with industrial ultrashort pulsed

Tens of thousands of YAG, diode, and fiber lasers are deployed in demanding manufacturing applications, from cutting steel, to drilling via holes in silicon, to marking plastic. A whole range of material processes now make use of lasers to produce results not previously practical.

Webinar: High Power laser measurement challenges and solutions

Join us to learn the basic principles, and best practices of high-power laser measurement

Controlling High-Power Laser Processes

Webinar produced by Photonics Media and presented by Mark Slutzki, Product Manager at Ophir Photonics on October 2021

Laser beams with powers of many tens of kilowatts are becoming increasingly common in today's industrial applications. However, as the powers increase, the stakes increase as well. In this webinar, Mark Slutzki of Ophir discuss how to monitor appropriate laser parameters to keep high-power processes stable and predictable

Laser Measurement Solutions for Materials Micro processing Applications

Webinar produced by Photonics Media and presented by Mark Slutzki, Product Manager at Ophir Photonics on June 2022

Measuring Long-Wavelength Lasers with IR Cameras,

Webinar produced by Photonics Media and presented by Kevin Kirkham, Senior Manager of Business Development USA at Ophir Photonics on June 2022

In this webinar Kevin D. Kirkham presents the types of measurement tools that are available for long-wavelength sources, and he helps determine which tools are appropriate for different application types. These tools include IR cameras, pyroelectric scanning-slit sensors, and wavelength conversion apparatus.

Measuring the Power and Beam Profile of Divergent Laser Sources

Webinar produced by Photonics Media and presented by Derrick Peterman, Sales director, USA & Americas at Ophir Photonics on May 2021

In this webinar, Derrick Peterman, Ph.D., discuss methods for reliably characterizing the beam power and profile of divergent sources, so that users will be able to better understand how their lasers are performing in critical applications.

Product Overview: F150(200)A-CM-16 High Damage Threshold Laser Power Sensor

If you need to measure the power of high repetition rate lasers with very short pulses (typical in many micromachining applications), with powers up to 200W – and you want a sensor that will survive the experience – the new F150(200)A-CM-16 from Ophir may be exactly what you need.
