Most of us are familiar with the many benefits and changes that laser-based additive manufacturing is bringing to manufacturing, including reduced tooling costs, easier testing of complex geometries ,and faster time to market. With these benefits come a constant – the performance of your laser will change over time. Therefore, understanding your laser’s behavior is critical to successfully applying it to the AM process. In this webinar, we will discuss why laser system performance changes and why it is important to understand, as well as when, how, and how often to measure and analyze the laser’s performance so as not to impact the efficiency and quality of the products being produced.
