Paper Abstract

A comprehensive approach to delivering the beam of a multi-kilowatt industrial laser is described throughout its entire path length from laser exit to beam impingement on the part. The importance of sharing the beam among workcells to fully utilize the laser is emphasized. Attention to each aspect of beam handling in providing rapid, reliable, and safe delivery of the beam can help ensure the success of laser processing in production.
