Dynamic Beam Lasers Reshape Materials Processing Applications

July 4, 2022

Emerging dynamic beam-shaping technology is enhancing the flexibility and precision of lasers used in macromachining, high-kilowatt welding, and cutting applications.

Dynamic beam lasers based on coherent beam combining

June 20, 2022

Civan’s Dynamic Beam laser provides a High Power (up to 100 kW), Single Mode, Continuous Wave output with the ability to create arbitrary beam shapes and do beam steering at a speed of 10s of MHz. The Dynamic Beam is derived from using the Coherent Beam Combining (CBC) technology and the Optical Phased Array (OPA) technology. This combination allows to dynamically tailor beam parameters to the required application. The benefits of the Dynamic Beam are significant in many applications such as welding, cutting, drilling, and additive manufacturing. This is due to its ability to have better control of the melt pool and the keyhole, which both affect the quality of products. In cases where the melt pool is not stable, spatter and pores occur and damage the pieces.

Dynamic Beam Laser System Offers Real-Time Look into Melt PoolMaterial Processing

April 27, 2022

Laser developer and manufacturer Civan Lasers has delivered an OPA 6 dynamic beam laser (DBL) to the University of Stuttgart’s Institut fur Strahlwerzeyge (IFSW). The DBL will form a system with IFSW’s high-speed x-ray video facility for laser materials-processing diagnostics. The system will enable researchers to view inside the melt pool during the laser welding process.
