The M-Shaper optical function is not possible by conventional reflective or refractive optical elements. It provides higher quality of the process & enables more flexibility in the system configuration. For example, it allows optimization of the intensity profile, and image size, without changing the laser, fiber cable and/or optic head.
In general, the intensity profile influences the heat distribution during laser material processing. The benefits of our optimized M-shaped intensity profile, in scanning applications (i.e., for the welding process) include:
- Uniform exposure over the scanned line
- Ensures a defined edge
- Enables very strong weld seams
