SLD Laser introduces high power blue laser modules for materials processing applications

SLD Laser has introduced its ultra-compact, high-power, high-brightness, fiber coupled blue laser modules for materials processing applications, including copper welding for battery production for electric vehicles and consumer electronic devices, as well as 3D printing.

“SLD Laser is pleased to introduce its high power, high brightness blue laser module technology for industrial materials processing,” stated Dr. James Raring, President, COO, and Co-Founder of SLD Laser. “SLD’s blue laser light modules feature up to 12 times the absorption, processing quality and speed compared to infrared laser technology. This technology produces superior results in copper, aluminum, stainless steel, as well as other metals such as nickel, gold, titanium, and silver that are commonly used for plating, other thin metal processes and 3D printing.”

SLD’s blue laser light output is also highly absorptive in non-metals and organics, and therefore is ideal for marking, engraving, and cutting of these materials. Moreover, for biomedical applications, SLD’s blue laser light exhibits more than ten times absorption in blood hemoglobin and melanin in skin than infrared lasers, enabling next generation solutions in dermatology and surgery.

SLD’s blue laser module technology is ultra-compact, with a form factor roughly the size of a credit card, and delivers over 20 watts from a 100 micron transport fiber. The technology is modular and can be power scaled and aggregated with optical fibers into higher power systems to deliver hundreds of watts from high brightness delivery fibers less than 600 microns diameter. SLD’s blue laser modules feature the company’s proprietary and patented Semipolar GaN laser diode technology, with highly efficient and reliable operation to enable system integrators and application development teams to configure solutions for a wide variety of applications, and get to market quickly.
