DILAS Industrial Laser Systems, Mainz, Germany, has unveiled the MINI integrated diode laser system based on fiber-coupled modules.
Despite the extremely small dimensions of 336 mm x 144 mm, this high-power diode laser system delivers optical output powers of up to 50 W CW at 980 nm out of a 400 µm fiber and up to 35 W, CW, power out of a 200 µm fiber. Cooling is provided by Peltier elements and air flow. The system can either be controlled via an USB port using the supplied software or by conventional analog and 24 V signals.
The MINI is available as an easily integrable OEM version (without housing) or as a housed desktop version. A fiber optic cable of 5 m length and with SMA connector allows flexible beam guidance to the working area.
Available accessories like processing heads of different focal spot sizes and working distances can be used in conjunction with the MINI system. Furthermore, the integrated red pilot beam facilitates to adjust the laser to the work piece.
The MINI is used for a variety of applications in direct materials processing such as selective soldering and welding of plastics, as well as for applications in illumination, analysis, or research and development. For such applications, different wavelengths (630 nm to 2000 nm) are available upon request.
