Ophir Photonics Expands BeamWatch® Family of Non-Contact Industrial Beam Monitoring Systems for High Power YAG, Fiber, and Diode Lasers

February 10, 2015 - San Francisco, CA – Ophir Photonics, global leader in precision laser measurement equipment and a Newport Corporation company, today announced the expansion of the BeamWatch® family of industrial laser beam profilers at Photonics West. BeamWatch is the industry’s first non-contact, focus spot size and position monitor for very high power YAG, fiber, and diode lasers. Designed for material processing applications, the system instantly and accurately measures laser parameters without requiring contact with the laser beam. New features include the ability to monitor smaller diameter focus spots -- down to 80µm -- for cutting and welding of thinner materials, and 2D viewing of beams to determine roundness or the presence of astigmatism.
