PRIMES GmbH produces measuring devices for the characterization of laser beam parameters such as power, beam profile, focused and raw beam propagation as well as beam quality.

About us

PRIMES has more than 25 years of experience in the development of diagnostics solution for the complete range of laser technology and especially in custom tailored OEM beam analysis devices and absorbers. We offer laser beam diagnostics for quality assurance in industrial manufacturing, maintenance, trouble shooting and also for R & D applications. Our focus lies on measuring devices for the characterization of CO2-, solid state-, fiber- and diode lasers used for material processing and scientific 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 operations has led to a new generation of PRIMES instruments especially for wavelengths from UV to NIR. The field bus interface of several PRIMES systems offers the possibility for an easy integration into a laser machine.

FocusMonitor FM+ HPD

As the latest innovation in the FocusMonitor family, PRIMES introduces the FM+ HPD.

Through continuous development and the special design of the new measuring principle FS³, it is now possible to measure and evaluate laser beams with very high power densities of up to 50 MW/cm2. Here, beam diameters of 100 μm – 1 200 μm can be evaluated. The revolutionary design and the new functionality of the FocusMonitor FM+ HPD are available for beam sources in the wavelength range of 1.0 – 1.1 μm.
