FM+ Now for Green and Blue Lasers

PRIMES’ FocusMonitor FM+ is now qualified for standard-compliant measurement of focus geometries in the green and blue spectral range, making it a critical device for validating the laser processing of copper materials commonly used in e-mobility and battery production.

As new and more powerful lasers in the green and blue spectral range have become available for industrial use, PRIMES saw the need to offer with the FocusMonitor FM+ a reliable qualification tool for the laser applications associated with e-mobility manufacturing.

For the first time, laser users are now able to efficiently measure and monitor their laser-based machining processes, laser systems and production tasks from the far infrared to the blue spectral range.

Macro Additive Manufacturing

Laser Mech’s new FiberWELD® DH is a high power, laser wire, direct deposition head for processing macro-scale industrial and aerospace components. The head delivers multi-axis laser energy to a center-fed process wire for total directional independence

Engineered for high duty cycle production applications, FiberWELD® DH features direct-cooled reflective optics, back-reflection protection and wire feed. In addition, FiberWELD® DH’s easily accessible, protective cover glasses extend the life of internal optics.

Primary applications for Laser Mechanisms’ NEW FiberWELD® DH include additive manufacturing, cladding and HLAW.

All-New SST™ Gas Jet Nozzles

Laser Mechanisms’ all-new Super Stand-off Technology (SST™) gas jet nozzles deliver double the stand-off tolerance and up to 15 percent increased cutting speed when 3D cutting hot-stamped boron steels and stainless steels in the range of 1-3 mm thickness.

State-of-the-art flow analysis software, combined with exhaustive robotic cutting tests in Laser Mech’s Applications Development Lab, were used to develop optimized gas jet designs that deliver a burr-free, clean cut with improved processing speed and without an increase in gas pressure.

Beam Analysis with the PRIMES FMW+

The NEW PRIMES FocusMonitor FMW+ measures focused laser beams with diameters between 100 μm and 3 mm in tight spaces – perfect for additive manufacturing applications. The FMW+ can measure NIR as well as CO2 beams up to 1,000 W laser power.

Specially designed for analyzing continuous irradiation, FocusMonitor FMW+ can reliably determine the geometric dimensions of the focused laser beam as well as the focal point location in space, the beam parameter product, and the beam quality factor M2. With a maximum size of 8 x 8 mm, FMW+’s measurement window can be gauged with a resolution of up to 1024 x 1024 pixels.
