PRIMES produces measuring devices for the characterization of laser beam parameters such as power, beam profiling, focus shift, beam propagation as well as beam quality.

About us

PRIMES has over 30 years of experience in the development of laser diagnostics solutions. We develop and produce market leading systems for beam characterization in industrial applications. Our spectrum of high-precision, durable products is put to use in numerous branches, such as automotive industry, industrial machinery, additive manufacturing as well as R&D and laser manufacturing. PRIMES is an important player on the global market, represented by 12 distributors and a subsidiary in Japan. We have a clear customer focus and provide worldwide consulting.

We focus on robust, industry proven, ready-to-use-systems for industrial environments. They are easy to integrate in production processes due to standardized interfaces. Thanks to the in-house design of hard- and software we can offer optimal solutions for a wide variety of laser measuring tasks as well as for nearly all major laser- and machine builders. Our core competence lies in beam diagnostic devices for use in the processing area of systems with multi-kilowatt laser power.

FocusTracker FT

The FocusTracker FT uses a novel measuring principle to measure the focus position in a fast and easy way. This new system is able to measure two different ranges of divergence in one device. It can measure a fiber directly as well as an optical setup. Time resolution is up to 40 Hz. The FT helps to better understand and monitor the thermal behavior of an optical setup at your process parameters. It is available as water- or air-cooled version, for both VIS- or NIR wavelengths.

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.

design, and our innovative measuring principle make
the SFM a multifaceted, nimble handheld turbo for
laser beam diagnostics and process optimization.

News & Innovations

PRIMES laser beam diagnostics now also for green and blue spectral range

PRIMES has now qualified different product groups for use with lasers in the green and blue spectral range. For the first time, laser users are now able to efficiently measure and monitor their laser-based machining processes, laser systems and production tasks from the far infrared to the blue spectral range.
Multi-kilowatt lasers in the green and blue spectral range are particularly suitable for laser processing of copper materials used, for example, in batteries or electric motors for e-mobility. The absorption of copper is higher in the spectral range mentioned above than in the spectral range around 1 µm used so far. This either saves laser power with the same productivity or enables a correspondingly higher productivity with the same power.

Since new and powerful lasers in the green and blue spectral range have recently become available for industrial use, PRIMES now offers with different products reliable qualification tools for the above mentioned applications.
