Paper Abstract

The focusing characteristics of divergent laser beams change with the distance between laser source and processing head. To keep the energy distribution on the workpiece surface on the same level while working with a flying lens, the use of deformable mirror systems has proven to be a suitable solution. In this case, a newly-developed system is brought into the beam guidance system to keep the focal spot diameter constant.
