Laser processing head
with real-time monitoring
Laser Mechanisms’ Fiber-WELD® processing head,
through the use of patented inline coherent imaging (ICI) technology, now
features real-time direct
penetration monitoring for
precise depth measurement of industrial laser processes.
Connecting to the processing head
through a dedicated port, a measurement beam with a unique wavelength
is coaxially combined with the primary
laser beam. The measurement beam is
reflected off the surface being worked
back to the sensor unit, where it is processed to measure the depth of penetration. Readings are accurate even
while the laser is operating, allowing
for real-time measurement and quality
control. Output can be fed back into the
control system for remediation and full

an extended reach is needed.
The straight-line air tools are available in either a front- or rear-exhaust
air motor and run at 25,000 RPM. They
are available in 3-in. and 6-in. extension
models. Each grinder features a safety-lock lever to prevent accidental tool
startup. Running as low as 72 dBA, the
grinder powers optional carbide burrs
and mounted points for deburring,
grinding, etching, and cleaning.
