New types of additive manufacturing (AM) laser processes must have a consistent energy supply that is also symmetrical, uniform, stable. In many cases, these processes also require a beam spot size and intensity that is maintained within a finite acceptance window when delivered to the material that is to be transformed. The question is then how to measure and analyze the beam in order be sure that it meets the application requirements. This white paper discusses sensor fusion, a process that merges data from numerous sensors to create a more complete understanding of the laser-enabled process.
