The space saving 19-inch conception makes the integration of the laser easier for plant constructors thereby qualifying it as a standard industrial tool. Whether in a classical control cabinet, a processing station or underneath the conveyor belts of an interlinked production plant, the innovative design makes it possible to integrate the LDM diode laser in any production area. It requires no additional space and is thus perfectly suitable for OEM applications.
Multi-Kilowatt Power for 19" Rack Mount Module
The system design of the fiber-coupled OEM modules of the LDM series is consequently focused on compactness, reliability and ease of integration. The LDM is a 19-inch rack mounted laser, the size of a PC. It includes the diode stacks, a fiber-coupling unit, the power supply, cooling as well as microelectronics used to monitor and control the laser.
With an increase in performance of the product family LDM in the 7 RU system, Laserline again sets the standard for compact high power diode lasers. Further development of the LDM technology makes new applications with laser power of 8 kW possible. The beam quality of the fiber-coupled LDM diode laser is comparable to that of a lamp-pumped solid-state laser but with ten times the higher socket output efficiency at a fraction of the size. This user orientated product offers a very simple handling due to the functional standardized signal interface.
The LDM module is based on the proven and continuously-developed Laserline diode technology. Today it is used worldwide in many application areas and is characterized by high reliability and system stability. Therefore Laserline’s diode lasers are offered with a five-year warranty on laser diodes. This period may be extended on request.
The main element of the LDM's product philosophy is user friendliness. The miniaturization of the laser system leads to a clear reduction in investment and operation costs. LDM diode lasers have a great potential to be a substitute not only for existing laser applications but also for conventional methods, e.g. welding, repair welding or heat treatment.
