High Power Diode Lasers. Perfect Beam Source

Typical fields of use for Laserline’s diode lasers are classical industrial applications in material processing like welding, brazing, hardening, softening, and realization or repairing of coatings. Additionally, Laserline’s diode lasers have become established in plastic welding and in newer manufacturing processes like additive manufacturing (Metal 3-D printing) or welding of fiber composites. The users are primarily from the automotive industry, or the engineering, tool- and mold-making industries. Also in the aerospace and heavy industry, many companies today count on Laserline.

  • LDM series

    Compact

    The space saving 19-inch conception makes the integration of the laser easier for plant constructors, thereby qualifying it as a standard industrial tool. Whether in a classical control cabinet, a processing station or underneath the conveyor belts of an interlinked production plant, the innovative design makes it possible to integrate LDM diode lasers’ space saving in the production areas. In a standard control cabinet, in a processing station or underneath the conveyor belts of an interlinked production plant, the laser requires no additional space and is thus perfectly suitable for OEM applications.

    Multi-kilowatt power for 19" rack mount module

    The system design of  the fiber-coupled OEM modules from of the LDM series is consequently focused on compactness, reliability and ease of integration. The LDM is a 19-inch rack mounted laser, the size of a PC. It includes the diode stacks, a fiber-coupling unit, the power supply, cooling as well as microelectronics , used to monitor and control the laser.

    Powerful

    With the enhancement of LDM’s product family with the new 7 HE plug-in system, Laserline once again sets the standard for compact high-power diode lasers. Further development of the LDM technology makes development of new applications with laser powers of 6 kW possible. The beam quality of the fiber-coupled LDM diode laser is comparable to that of a lamp-pumped solid-state laser, only with ten times the higher socket output efficiency at a fraction of the size. A very simple handling due to the functional, standardized signal interface underlines this user-oriented product’s philosophy. 

    Reliable

    The LDM module is based on the proven and continuously-developed Laserline diode technology. Today, it is used worldwide in many application areas and is characterized by high reliability and system stability. Therefore, Laserline’s diode lasers are offered with a five-year warranty on laser diodes. This period may be extended on request. 

    User-friendly

    User-friendliness is at the center of the LDM product’s philosophy. The miniaturization of the laser system leads to a clear reduction in investment and operation costs. So, LDM diode lasers have a great potential to be a substitute not only for existing laser applications but also for conventional methods, e.g. welding, repair welding or heat treatment.

  • LDF series - mobile high power diode laser

    The LDF platform - thinking into the future

    With the LDF series Laserline is setting the benchmarks for high power diode lasers. Even devices with over 20kW laser power are set on sturdy castors allowing a single employee to move the laser to different locations for start-up in production – a unique benefit. All you need is electricity, water and an optical fiber – and the laser is ready for use at its new site. Thanks to permanent development of our proven active diode cooling technology the system family is optimized to multi-kilowatt power levels even at high beam qualities: 7 kW out of a 600 µm fiber at NA 0.1 in a compact system configuration at less than one square meter footprint.

    A modular concept allows maximal flexibility

    Whether power, cooling or system interfaces: The LDF series can be individually configured and adapted to changing requirements. The systems are available with internal or external cooling system as water/water or water/air version. With these Laserline chillers, perfectly aligned to the product line and fully integrated in the control system, high power lasers can now be operated permanently in production with a low footprint requirement. Through the internal networking of all system components malfunctions can be diagnosed in real-time and resolved immediately.

    The new benchmark for power and functionality

    With an electrical efficiency of up to 50 percent, the LDF series is also right up there at the top when it comes to technical efficiency. Its functionality leaves nothing to be desired: due to the mobile hot-plug operation unit, LDF lasers can be very flexibly monitored and controlled even from a distance. Connection areas and interfaces are easily accessible by an extractable hood. System components can easily be exchanged; in this way, production does not come to a halt.

    The intelligent system control makes a difference

    An industrial, latest-generation Ethernet network combines the system components and interfaces with the central control unit, which monitors the entire process in real time. An OPC-UA interface creates the prerequisites for a platform-independent, vertical and horizontal data communication. It enables the integration of lasers in modern system architectures. All information is available at any time: on the mobile control panel directly on the laser, via network connection in a control center, as well as over secured remote access.

    The beam source of the LDF diode laser

    The beam source contains several stacks of individual diode bars. The number of bars per stack and the total number of stacks depends on the laser output power and the required beam quality. Using a straightforward, patented technology, the beams of the diodes are overlaid to form a single laser beam that is coupled into an optical fiber.

    In most cases, the modular structure of the laser head allows the system to be fitted with additional stacks if extra power is needed.

    Stack Management

    Laserline aims for maximum reliability in particular for the heart of each diode laser system: the individual laser diode. Very stringent criteria and specially developed test procedures, guarantee that only qualified laser diodes are used. Diode laser systems from Laserline operate for more than 30,000 hours, which is equivalent to 5 - 7 years of production, before diode laser elements may need replacing.

    Should, despite all precautions, a spontaneous failure of a diode laser occur, Laserline’s pioneer electronic stack management system steps into action. Based on the redundancy concept and automatic system adjustment, faults can be compensated within a few minutes.
