TRUMPF develops technology for high-brilliance direct diode lasers

The laser and laser system manufacturer TRUMPF recently unveiled its TruDiode 4001.5 technology demonstrator at LASER World of PHOTONICS in Munich. Based on a new, patented technology known as Dense Wavelength Multiplexing (DWM), the 4 kW direct diode laser offers a brilliant beam quality of 5 mm•mrad, enabling it to be connected to a laser light cable with a core diameter of 150 µm. By way of comparison, commercially available direct diode lasers in the high-power segment typically have beam qualities of between 30 and 50 mm•mrad and are used with a 600 µm laser light cable.

A drive for the future

Delta Drive – the new superweapon in TRUMPF’s arsenal for punch and punch-and-laser processing. The patented drive was developed with an eye to achieving several goals, such as facilitating the construction of smaller machines and opening up new methods of material handling. But how?

New opportunities six meters in length

Six meters: the length of a delivery van – or an adult alligator. Or a sheet that the TruLaser 3060 fiber can cut. This new oversize format machine from the TRUMPF 3000 series can process sheets as large as 6 x 2.5 meters. This means that users of the TruLaser 3060 fiber can acquire more orders for particularly large workpieces. Alternatively, the large working range enables sequential automated handling of four medium-format sheets – even if they differ in thicknesses and material.

Machines speak, AXOOM translates

“Everyone’s talking about AXOOM”. And not only that: the Karlsruhe-based company founded by the mechanical engineering company TRUMPF is even “getting machines to ‘talk’” – thanks to differentiated data evaluation.

TRUMPF presents the future of laser technology in Munich

The high technology company TRUMPF will be presenting tomorrow’s laser technology at the LASER – World of Photonics trade fair in Munich from June 26 to 29, 2017. Innovative beam guidance concepts revolutionize micromachining with ultrashort pulse lasers – New diode laser technology drastically cuts power consumption – High-energy laser amplifiers make electron movements at microscopic level visible.

Twice the cutting speed

Higher cutting speed = higher laser power. This formula has been more than just a rule of thumb. But TRUMPF engineers have now severed the correlation between speed and kilowatts. The fruit of their labor? The Highspeed and Highspeed Eco cutting processes.

New TRUMPF disk laser celebrates world premiere in Shanghai

The laser and laser system manufacturer TRUMPF recently showcased the latest generation of its TruDisk disk laser at the Laser – World of Photonics trade fair in Shanghai. As the most advanced high-power solid state laser on the market, this new generation of disk lasers boasts built-in intelligence, offering optimum hardware features for a digitalized future and Industry 4.0. The ability to carry out condition and trend analyses – also known as condition monitoring and predictive maintenance – is a basic prerequisite for successfully implementing lasers in digitalized and connected manufacturing environments.
