Materials Processing: When Laser Measurements Absolutely, Positively Must Be Made

Materials Processing: When Laser Measurements Absolutely, Positively Must Be Made

By Kenneth Ferree, Director of Sales, Ophir Photonics

In order to improve laser-based processes, a variety of parameters must be measured to understand how design changes effect performance, and how to help avoid component degradation. The challenge occurs when figuring the proper frequency of measurements throughout the life of the laser, choosing which measurements should be tracked, and what should be done with the collected data. There are five times within a laser system’s lifetime where the collection and application of laser performance measurement data are critical to the process’ outcome. Download the article to learn about these instances, and how to best apply the data collected.
