Laser Components introduces polychromatic beam splitters for process monitoring solutions

Share this on social media:

Complex sensor systems are at the heart of laser material processing in Industry 4.0. They control and monitor digitised processes. This also means new challenges for the optical components. It is not uncommon for a single optical system to have to direct the wavelengths for three or more detectors.

Laser Components has developed polychromatic beam splitters as a solution. The firm has developed mirrors that transmit the signal for cameras in the infrared range (1,300-1,900nm) and in the visible range (400-700nm). Additional wavelengths can also be accommodated, e.g. for a pilot laser (650nm) or an optical coherence tomography (OCT) system for depth measurement (950nm).

At the same time, the coatings are robust enough to permanently withstand a high-power laser for material processing (1,030-1,080nm). 

Which parameters do you need to monitor? Send Laser Components your requirements and we will develop the right coating design for your needs – no matter how complex they may be.
