The Ophir BeamWatch AM noncontact laser beam monitoring system for additive manufacturing is designed for real-time measurement of focal shift during laser startup. It measures key beam size, position, and quality parameters, including focus spot size and beam caustic. Measurements can be displayed as tabular, 2D, and 3D views. The system uses Rayleigh scatter to image the beam without contacting the laser, removing the potential for damage to the laser and speeding the measurement process by up to 2 min. It can measure laser powers to 1000 W in situ at rates up to 14 Hz, and can handle up to 120,000 J without cooling.
