Compact industrial laser provides efficient power up to 10,000 W

Laserline continues to push the performance of its industrial high-power laser systems, packaging up to 10,000 W in a dramatically shrunk footprint. Continuous improvement of the active cooling technology is the key to building such a high-power laser with a footprint of 770 x 950 mm² (30 x 38 in.) with an integrated chiller as an option.

Industrial diode lasers--compact, efficient laser power up to 10,000 W

Laserline continues to push the performance of their industrial high power laser systems, packaging up to 10,000 W in a dramatically shrunk footprint. Introduced last year, several systems with 10,000 W delivered via a 1 mm fiber are deployed into industrial applications, for cladding as well for welding of thick sheets. The next generation laser, which will be shown at the LASER 2009 in Munich, is based on Laserline's existing technology, proven in hundreds of industrial applications worldwide. Continuous improvement of the active cooling technology is the key to building such a high power laser with a footprint of 770 x 950 mm² (30" x 38") with an integrated chiller as an option.

"The savings that our next generation lasers offer aren't just a smaller footprint," Klaus Kleine, VP North American Operations said. "With an efficiency of up to 45% they are the most economical laser sources in regards to investment and operating cost."

Compact power: LDM diode laser modules for OEM customers

Not only the high power industrial systems underwent a radical upgrade: The well-known, 19" rack mount LDM modules still are as compact with a height of 22 cm (9" or 5U), but they now pack more punch with a 60% power increase, delivering more than 2,300 W. No other laser system worldwide can rival the power density offered by the LDM. The key to success again is the active cooling, pioneered by the members of Laserline's technical team.
