Within a year, Laserline has been able to double the power of blue CW high-power diode lasers with 450 nm wavelength. With the LDMblue 2000-60, a new high-power diode laser is available in the compact 19” rack, offering 2 kW output power at 60 mm mrad beam quality. As a result, when welding non-ferrous metals, especially when joining copper components for the electronics industry, higher process speeds and deeper weldings become possible.
Under the watchword ‘Digital Laser Solutions’, Laserline has expanded its portfolio with hardware and software solutions for the implementation of fully networked Industrie 4.0 process architectures. All Laserline LDF diode lasers are with immediate effect ex works available with OPC UA interfaces and can thus be integrated seamlessly into IoT architectures on an OPC UA basis. Additionally, Laserline offers a retrofit solution for the OPC UA upgrade of existing systems. By the IoT integration of the laser, the switchover to a forward-planning or condition-depended maintenance inter alia is supported.
Diode laser specialist Laserline will present at the Blechexpo / Schweisstec 2019 an infrared-blue hybrid concept for copper keyhole welding and possible solutions for heat conduction welding of thin non-ferrous metal components. Also on board are infrared lasers for welding steel sheets, different processing optics, and exhibits from industrial practice.
