Beam guiding – so laser beams find their way
Lasers are used for targeted and highly delicate tasks as well as for common laser cutting. The laser beam is of special importance in this context, which also applies to the beam guiding of the laser.
That does not always have to be straight and without frills. Special mirrors guide the beam to where the laser is supposed to take effect. The beam is usually controlled by a computer.
The corresponding mirrors can be moved individually and guide the beam. Beam guiding is not necessarily a fixed component of a laser. It is integrated into separate assemblies which also have other tasks.
Depending on the power level, the beam guiding unit is equipped with the corresponding mirrors. These units are commonly found in laser systems for industrial use.
