Paper Abstract

Industrial application of a high power laser usually requires an instrumentation for directing and aiming of the laser beam. Optical-mechanical beam control and imaging system is described. This system allows the operator to arbitrarily change the point of impingement of the laser beam along the treated object at any time during the technological process. Herewith the system provided the opportunity of continuous, precise monitoring of the invisible (infrared) laser focal spot position on the image of the treated object. Both visual and TV options are presented. This system is especially useful for industrial application in the following circumstances and their combinations: the object cannot be moved arbitrarily against the laser beam; the object is at the substantial distance from the laser; the visible pilot laser beam cannot be used for aiming.
