    The system can be manually operated by PC using BeamWatch, our full-function software with an extensive set of ISO quantitative propagation measurements, NIST calibrated power measurements, graphical representations of the beam caustic. Requires user supplied PC.
    The system can alternatively be operated automatically by PLC using PROFINET, EtherNet/IP or CC-Link. Tolerances and limit values can be set-up for desired measured parameters to trigger corrective actions. The trend charts give insights for early problem detection and predictive maintenance.
    In both cases PDF and CSV reports can be generated.

Ophir® BeamWatch® Integrated – Automated Beam Measurement for Industrial High-Power Lasers Ophir® BeamWatch® Integrated – Automated Beam Measurement for Industrial High-Power Lasers

MKS developed the Ophir BeamWatch Integrated industrial laser beam profiler to meet the needs of material processing users. Designed for use with high-power laser beams, the measurement device combines non-contact beam profiling of the BeamWatch family and an Ophir power measurement sensor with high industrial standards in automation technology.
Beam profiling and power measurement are integrated into a closed, robust housing.

In addition to GigE, industrial interfaces such as ProfiNet, Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT or CC-Link are provided to easily integrate the system in automated production lines. Within seconds, the fully automated measurement is done, and all individual laser parameters are instantaneously transferred. Additionally, an OK/NOK (good/bad) output can be configured based on based on relevant process parameters. In case of a NOK, the user can take corrective actions before bad parts are produced.

White Paper – Keeping Your Additive Manufacturing Laser in Spec

There is little debate about how Additive Manufacturing is adding benefits and changing the face of manufacturing in our modern age. Additive Manufacturing allows for the manufacturing of more customized parts, using more specialized materials, and will eventually create a more localized, rapid, and agile distribution network than what have been used to. Прочитать подробнее…

Laser Measurements in Materials Processing: How and When They Absolutely, Positively Must Be Made

19th century British physicist and engineer William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin, was the first to say, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.” When applying this principle to improving laser-based processes, there are a variety of parameters that must be measured. Given the continuously rising power of laser systems in material processing, the requirements for measurement systems are more challenging than ever. Which technologies are available to measure high-power lasers? How often should they be measured? What measurements should be tracked? When this data is collected, what should be done with it? Прочитать подробнее…

Case Study: The Ophir Beamwatch System Optimizes Laser Process Development

The laser seam welding of sheets of zinc-coated steel – a combination of metals with disparate melting and evaporation properties – used to be a major challenge for the automotive industry. But Volkswagen AG is pursuing a promising approach with multi-focal laser welding: A newly developed process enables significantly higher welding speeds than is otherwise possible with conventional mono-focal laser beam welding systems. Прочитать подробнее…
