Optical improvement for laser material processing

Control Materials Optics
Mikroniek 2010-2 by Johan Bosman et al. 2 April 2012

Even after years of industrial use of lasers, there is still room for new concepts and increased flexibility. The reason why laser technology is used in a wide variety of applications, is not the laser system itself but the ability to tailor optical energy to the demands of the production processes. The full potential of the laser technology is becoming available when combined with optical elements such as polarizers, cameras, lenses and sensors. The use of all these optical tools makes laser technology as a production technology adaptable to almost any situation.
