Better Defect Detection When Working with CO2 Lasers
10.6 µm Notch Filter Prevents Over-radiation in Process MonitoringOlching, )
The rest of the thermal image, on the other hand, is only reduced by about 15% across a transmission range of 8-13 μm. The filters are available immediately from LASER COMPONENTS on germanium at a standard size of 1 inch.
CO2 lasers are used in industry for welding, cutting, and forming work, among other applications. Process monitoring can detect defects such as weld spatter or hairline cracks at an early stage.
