Proximity pays - how multiple lasers can work together on high integrity parts
Production-orientated laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) machines increasingly feature multiple lasers to boost build rates. Overlapping fields of view enable these lasers to operate independently on separate parts, or to cooperate on single large components. Such flexible use of multiple lasers in close proximity to one another raises productivity and lowers part costs.
