Dilas Industrial Laser Systems has introduced a new diode laser system based on a diode laser module with an optical output power of 30W CW and increased beam quality. The module is integrated into the company's well-established Compact platform, a fibre-coupled turnkey diode laser system. Due to the beam parameter product of ±11mm mrad (100μm fibre core diameter, NA 0.22), this direct diode laser system can handle new application fields in materials processing since considerably small focal diameters can be reached.
In combination with the company's standardised processing heads, like fixed optics with integrated pyrometer and CCD camera or galvo scanner heads, applications such as micro plastics welding and selective micro soldering can be performed. These processes are prevalent in medical device manufacture.
Miniaturisation of the products requires production technologies that are able to connect smallest solder joints or weld micro fluidic devices. Focus diameters of less than 180μm are possible with the company's fixed optics, or less than 400μm with a galvo scanner.
