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.
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.
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.
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.
With more than 2,300 installations, Laserline’s LDF diode lasers are amongst the most successful beam sources worldwide for industrial applications in the multi kilowatt range.
