Innovations from Trumpf increase product offerings

At LASER 2007. World of Photonics trade Trumpf intend to show their newest innovation in laser beam sources, the TruDisk 1000 disk laser with its extremely compact design. For higher performance classes, lasers from the TruPulse series will be shown at the trade show. Trumpf also promises innovations in marking lasers from the TruMark series as well as in the TruMicro lasers for micro-processing.

The new TruDisk 1000 disk laser has an output of 1 kW has a beam quality of 2 mm*mrad. Preferred areas of application for this compact laser beam source are fine welding and highly dynamic cutting, as well as welding of small structures. At the head of the disk laser product family is a new member the TruDisk 8002 with an output of 8 kW at a beam quality of 8 mm*mrad. At the trade show, Trumpf will demonstrate reliable processing of a 3D part with the TruDisk 8002.

TruPulse is Trumpf's new generation of pulsed solid-state lasers. The successor generation of the successful HLP lasers includes new performance classes in compact housing and offers what is now a standard feature: the "burst" function. This enables the TruPulse lasers to increase their average output in short bursts or surges to generate considerably more pulses in a shorter period of time. The increase in pulse train frequencies reduces the processing times in classic areas of application, such as the welding and cutting of filigree components. Entirely new products at LASER 2007 include three beam sources in the upper performance range with an average output of between 200 and 550 Watt.

The TruMark series 6000 has an increase in output power of up to 70% compared to the previous model. This leads to shorter processing times and increased productivity. The TruMark 7020 with fibre optic laser light cable and the option of two outlets enables markings to be inscribed with a greater edge sharpness due to a homogeneous beam profile. The laser markers from the TruMark series make it possible to complete the most diverse marking tasks on the most varying of materials. In addition to the marking process, plastic welding and soldering are also possible applications of this flexible and robot-friendly system.

The TruMicro 7050 has an average output of over 500 W. The output power of the TruMicro 3040, a model of the TruMicro series 3000, was doubled to 40 W compared to its successor, the TL20-1FQ. For use in micro-processing, the Trumpf program is thus providing a laser with an average output of between 40 and 500 W with pulse durations of nanoseconds down into the micro-second range.
