LDF Series NewTechnical data LDF

The New Benchmark for Diode Lasers

How can superior technology be improved? By making it more versatile to use while preserving all proven properties.

The new Laserline LDF diode laser of the 6th generation sets new standards for industrial applications in the multi-kilowatts range: with more power, more mobility, more efficiency and easier maintenance.

The New LDF platform – Thinking into the future

With the new LDF series, Laserline is setting new benchmarks for high power diode lasers. Devices with over 20 kW laser power are set on sturdy castors and can be placed by a single employee right next to a production line or moved to different locations – a unique benefit. All you need is electricity, water and optical fibers – and the laser is ready for use at its new location. Thanks to permanent development of our proven active diode cooling technology, up to 25 kW laser power can now be accommodated in a mobile laser system with only one cubic meter volume.

Modular concept

Whether power, cooling or equipment: The new LDF series can be individually configured and adapted to changing requirements. The systems are available with internal or external cooling system. With these Laserline chillers, perfectly aligned to the product line and fully integrated in the control system, high power lasers can now be operated in less than 1.4 square meter footprint. Through the internal networking of all system components, faults can be diagnosed in real-time and resolved immediately

Intelligent System Control

An industrial, latest-generation Ethernet network combines the system components and interfaces with the central control unit, which monitors the entire process in real time. The two-stage fault management system displays warning and error messages, identifies causes and guides the user directly to efficient troubleshooting where appropriate. All information is available at any time: on the mobile control panel directly on the laser, via network connection in a control center, as well as over secured remote access.
