EOSTATE MeltPool observes the light emitted by the melt pool. The key elements are a pair of photodiodes located on- and off-axis, a camera adapter, a signal amplifier and spectral filters to separate process light from reflected laser light. The associated software offers automatic data error correction and real-time process visualisation and evaluation.

For data analysis, the toolbox visualises data and enables the evaluation of indication clusters. Three advanced algorithms are deployed to obtain different data interpretations. From the collected data, conclusions on resulting part quality can be drawn.
