At booth 927 Ophir will showcase BeamWatch Integrated, a fully automated system designed to measure critical laser beam parameters in industrial production environments.
This rugged, compact system features non-contact beam profiling technology that accurately captures and analyses industrial lasers typically too powerful for direct readings. The system instead measures Rayleigh scattering using a pass-through beam measurement technique that involves no contact between the instrument and the beam.
BeamWatch Integrated measures all the critical parameters of the focused beam in real-time, including focus spot width and location, focal shift, centroid, M2, divergence, beam parameter product (BPP), Rayleigh length, beam tilt angle, and absolute power. The system is designed for wavelengths from 980nm-1,080nm and laser powers up to 10kW (and 30kW, on request). It can accommodate different types of welding heads, and its Profinet and GigE interfaces make it easy to integrate into production networks and automated manufacturing lines.
