PRIMES has over 20 years of experience in the development of diagnostics solutions for the complete range of laser technology. The focus lies on measuring devices for the characterization of CO2-, solid state-, fiber- and diode lasers used for material processing and scientific applications. PRIMES designs laser beam diagnostics for quality assurance in industrial manufacturing, maintenance, trouble shooting and R&D applications. The applications range from micro processing to heavy industry. The mixture of several MW pulse power, just a few micron spot diameter and the time range from femto seconds up to cw operation has led to a new generation of PRIMES instruments, especially for wavelengths from UV to NIR. Field bus interfaces of several PRIMES systems enable an easy integration into a laser machine.
