Paper Abstract

A continuous control of the laser cutting process is necessary to guarantee a continuously high level of the cut quality. In order to achieve an on-line control, the mirror that leads the laser beam to the focussing optics is replaced by a beam splitter. This configuration makes a direct observation of the cutting process possible. The advantages and first results are shown.
