New laser safety regulation for laser machines (laser class 1)

Since End of 2016 there are new regulations regarding laser safety („Laserklasse 1“ in Germany).

New: direct laser light need to be considered as well as secondary light! 

During laser processing mostly a plasma is generated. This plasma emitted also UV light. Most laser windows do not have a sufficient UV protection.

In our laser safety reviews we also measure the intensity of this UV light, the UV transmission of laser windows and shielding of the laser light and the secondary light.  For any question sent email to „bergfeld (at)“
