Laser Beam Shaper

A laser beam is characterized by a coherent, monochromatic irradiance with a Gaussian profile, where the beam intensity is strongest at the center of the beam and decays towards the edges. If looking at the intensity profile on the working plane, this radiance profile results in a spot that has strong energy at the center … Continue reading

C-Shape Advanced Beam Shaping for Welding Applications

Holo/Or has ongoing cooperation with international research institutes on developing state of the art industrial laser technologies. During the Tailorweld project, we developed custom C-Shape beam shaper elements that improve the welding process. It was found that the C-Shape intensity distribution has advantages in the width/depth ratio, reducing oxidation and eliminating hot cracking by giving … Continue reading
