The LDMblue Series from Laserline are blue diode lasers with a CW output power of up to 1 kW at 450 nm wavelength. The lasers allow for a controlled heat conduction welding of highly reflexive non-ferrous metals such as copper or gold. They have been successfully tested in cladding processes based on non-ferrous metals. The lasers are available in a 19’’ rack mount enclosure and have a rise time of less than 150 microseconds (10%-90%). They are available in standard configurations with 1000, 500 or 300 W output power at beam qualities of 100 or 60 mm·mrad (LDMblue 1000-100 / 500-60 / 300-60).
