The FocusParameterMonitor (FPM) enables rapid determination of laser beam parameters. The measuring processes are completely controlled from the existing machine programs.
Measure laser beams quickly
The FocusParameterMonitor (FPM) is the first system on the market that allows quick determination of the laser beam parameters in the process zone. Its advantages: It can easily be integrated into the system, and moreover the fieldbus interface (PROFINET, PROFIBUS) provides easy connection to many industrial control systems and networks.
The FPM was initially conceived for laser beam measurement on a special application – laser welding pliers. It consists of three main components: the power measurement unit, the beam analysis unit and the fieldbus interface. These components are built into a stable aluminium housing. An electrically driven closing device protects the beam inlet from contamination; as does an interchangeable protective glass, which is flushed out with compressed air.
The beam parameters in the process zone are measured periodically. These automated checks form the basis for reliable process quality.
