Paper Abstract

With this paper a newly developed optical device for an active beam guidance and forming in CO2 laser systems is presented. The availability of this additional tuning element in processing will solve current problems in beam delivery as well as offer new laser processing options. By integrating this optic in the beam delivery: (1) the process conditions can be improved, (2) the process influencing effects in beam propagation or delivery can be compensated, (3) the workpieces with complex structures and difficult accessibility can be processed in conformance with high quality standards, and (4) new laser processing options are possible.
