Paper Abstract

A brief comparison of various types of lasers of 50 - 100 kW power range for industrial use is presented, taking into account the most important technical and economic details. Listed is consumption of fuel, gas components, water, atmospheric air, also electric power required for some of lasers described. Its emphasized that the most prospective is high power laser of gas-dynamic type. It is featured by the outstanding weight-dimensions and specific characteristics. Essential advantage of the proposed gas-dynamic mobile laser is independence of stationary supply of electric power generally required for other types. Combined with independence of electric power plant, the totality of its technical properties, reliability and relatively low operation expenses makes it especially attractive solution of wide range of technological problems like worn reactors utilization, heavy- gauge metal cutting, thin oil films water pollution, etc., namely by means of autonomous mobile technological gas-dynamic laser (AMT GDL).
