The first direct diode lasers in the design of a camera of the fifties, with outputs of 500 W, 900 W and 2000 W are developed and sold.
Laserline prevails against competitors and received the first order for 100 diode laser systems as the world's first multi-laser system.
A fiber-coupled diode laser is now up to 4000 W with a 1.500 micron fiber or up to 2000 W with a 1.000 micron fiber (NA 0.2) available. In the same year Laserline achieves to combine the good beam quality of diode lasers in the power range of up to 500 W with a scanning system. The first DioScan systems for quasi-simultaneous welding of plastics are available.
The Laser devices can be fitted to increase the system availability with a stack management. These electronics detect a defective laser stack, switch it off and automatically calculate the new parameters of the laser. The Tele-service allows to diagnose any errors in laser systems on a worldwide basis and support online customer on the phone. Fiber-coupled diode lasers are developed from Laserline with better beam quality: - 850 W in 400 micron fiber, NA 0.2. - 4.000 W in 1.000 micron fiber, 0.2 NA
Year after year, a better performance: fiber coupled diode laser with 6.000 W in 1.500 micron fiber, 0.2 NA
Fiber-coupled and direct diode laser with improved beam quality:
1.400 W in 400 micron fiber, NA 0.2
3,000 W in 600 micron fiber, NA 0.2
6,000 W in 1.000 micron fiber, NA 0.2
Direct diode laser up to 10,000 W power
At the LASER 2007 in Munich Laserline presents a fiber-coupled diode laser with a laser power of 4.000 W from a 400 micron fiber. A similar beam quality and efficiency so far was only achieved by a lamp-pumped Nd: YAG laser.
The world's first diode laser with a beam quality of a lamp-pumped Nd-YAG laser of 30 mm mrad and a laser power of 4.000 W is introduced into the market.
Since the LASER World of Photonics 2011 fiber-coupled diode lasers are available with 15.000 W of output power in a 1.000 micron fiber.
Laserline presents a diode laser with beam converter with an output power of 4 kW at 8 mm mrad at exhibition LASER World of Photonics in Munich 2013. Furthermore, diode lasers are available in the multi kilowatts range up to 20,000 watts.
Laserline doubles the output power of diode lasers to 40,000 watts within one year and presents this prototype at exhibition LASYS in Stuttgart. Besides new stainless steel optics OTS-5 are presented.
