Paper Abstract

Within the past couple of years one can see a general trend in high power diode lasers among others towards the highest possible brightness. The product portfolio of TRUMPF high brightness diode lasers with output power < 1kW will be presented. The architecture of these diode lasers, their main specifications as well as the main features of the control unit are shown. Some examples of the applications of these lasers in such advanced material processing techniques as welding of plastics and welding of thin metal sheets is also presented.
