A Class of its Own – Cube M
Measuring very high power densities? No longer a problem: the new Cube M by PRIMES enables measurements up to a power density of 250 kW/cm² at a power of 2 kW!
This latest measuring device is designed to monitor laser power of high quality lasers even in the smallest of spaces that usually do not accommodate a measurement device. The original Cube is designed for power measurements of single shot measurements with solid state lasers.
In some high power cases, however, the intensity of the laser radiation is much too high for conventional power meters and will damage the coating of the absorber. For such applications, PRIMES developed the new Cube M, capable of high power density laser radiation measurements.
The specialty: The micro optics array at the beam entrance, which was developed in-house at PRIMES, enables a mounting of the Cube M directly in the focused laser beam underneath the processing optics. Also, the beam incidence does not have to be vertical; angles of incidence of up to ± 20 ° are possible. These features make the Cube M ideally suited for micro machining and additive manufacturing applications.
