When using laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) in additive manufacturing
(AM), it is critical to be able to validate your system’s laser focal spot
characteristics prior to production. Failure to do so can result in
inconsistent quality in your builds and an expensive loss of time in your
manufacturing operation.

EWI has developed a new system that can compare and confirm laser spot size, shape, and quality in an L-PBF setup throughout an AM build. This device is described in A Solution for Laser Beam Quality Analysis in L-PBF AM Production, written by EWI Applications Engineer Jacob Hay.
