Happily, laser accidents with fibers are almost exclusively related to non-beam hazards. Still, laser fiber users need to understand a number of factors relevant to fiber optic safety.
Many laser standards exist to address the variety of laser use applications, but the fabrication setting is conspicuously omitted. This article details what the basic laser safety requirements for fabrication, as well as what it takes to implement such safeguards.
When it comes to laser protective eyewear, a number of factors go into selecting the best option, and some are more important than others.
To improve the safety, positive working environment, and ― ideally ― effectiveness of your laser lab, weigh these ergonomic considerations when approaching its layout.
Both new MIL RA Alignment Modules feature a low profile 3/8” rugged laser housing, fitted with a M12 connector. A PVC jacketed cable 2 meters long, integrated power supply and optional mounting bracket complete this sturdy ready-to-use system.
Lasers play roles in many manufacturing processes, from welding car parts to crafting engine components with 3D printers.* To control these tasks, manufacturers must ensure that their lasers fire at the correct power.
With its FLEXPOINT Long Range Line Module, LASER COMPONENTS has developed a highly-precise positioning tool for long distances. Even at 50 m, the line is only 4 m long and can be adjusted to line widths of a few millimeters with an easy-to-use focusing device. The FLEXPOINT LR-L module is available with red (660 nm) or green (520 nm) lines. Customers have the choice of any output power in a range between 5 mW and 30 mW.
Christian Dini from Ophir Photonics introduces the updated version of their beam profiling and beam propagation measurement system.
In this video, John McCauley from Ophir Photonics walks through a brief tutorial on beam propagation analysis for high powered lasers with the BeamWatch system.
At the Laser Components booth at Photonics West 2019, Julian Carey of SLD Laser introduces LaserLight, the first commercial solid-state, highly directional laser white light source with a luminance up to 100X better than LED luminaire devices.
This year at Photonics West, Dan Ford with the Ophir Photonics Group talked to us about the importance of achieving laser consistency.
Jeff Briton and Dragan Grubsic discuss some of the challenges involved in operating pulsed laser diodes and avalanche photodiodes in LIDAR for the automotive and sensor markets.
In this video, Jimmy Green, an OEM Specialist, shares how Ophir Photonics assisted a lasik surgery company replace a plastic mode burn pre-test with an accurate laser measurement device.
This video describes how laser beam profiling with Ophir Photonics’ BeamGage showed why two different lasers running at the same power output produced different results.
