Trumpf will be presenting tomorrow’s laser technology in hall A2, booth 330.
A new beam guidance concept for ultrashort pulse lasers is taking center stage. Trumpf will present a technology study that has the potential to revolutionise laser material processing with ultrashort pulse lasers. At the moment, it is technologically impossible to simply send ultrashort laser pulses down a flexible glass fiber to the workpiece – the laser pulse is so intense that it destroys the glass fibre. However, Trumpf has a new concept that gets around this problem and enables new ways to flexibly integrate lasers into machines and facilities.
New diode laser technology will also be presented, laying the foundations for 'green production' in industrial manufacturing. A diode laser will be demonstrated that is not only suitable for conventional applications such as soldering, hardening and laser deposition welding, but can also handle industrial applications that require signficantly higher beam quality. A clear advantage of diode laser technology is its high efficiency, which makes diode lasers extremely energy efficient.
The Trumpf Dira product range, specially designed for applications in the research sector, will also be on display. These laser amplifiers deliver high-energy picosecond pulses combined with high repetition rates; for instance, to pump optical parametric amplifiers. These can be used by scientists to produce attosecond pulses with which to investigate the highly dynamic movements of electrons at the molecular level.
