About us

PRIMES has 25 years of experience in the development of diagnostics solutions 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 operation 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.

The Cube is the latest PRIMES product, intended for the ballistic measurement of NIR laser power from 25 W to 8 kW. The device particularly distinguishes itself by its compact design (60 x 65 x 65 mm), which enables the use in confined spaces. It is equipped with an integrated Bluetooth interface for wireless communication. A special app enables wireless control by means of a tablet or a smartphone as well as the graphical display and the storage of measured values.



The OQM enables testing of the absorption of a transmissive optical element (lens or flat optics) with anti-reflection coatings in the outgoing- or incoming goods inspection in comparison with a reference element of the same type. The measurement of the temperature rise of the optical surface then allows relative or comparative statements regarding the absorption of optics within one production batch, between different production batches or between the deliveries by different manufacturers.

FocusMonitor +

FocusMonitor +

The focus is the real tool in laser material processing. Position and dimension of the focus impact the processing result. For many years the PRIMES FM has been the reliable tool for characterization of high power lasers. The system is able to characterize solid-state lasers as well as CO2 lasers.
The new FM+ offers more possibilities.
• Completely new electronics
• Ethernet communication
• Network Compatible
• Higher resolution up to 1024 x 1024 pixels
• One Button operation software enabled
