The company first developed its green TruDisk disk laser
line as a solution to the challenge of laser welding copper.
Based on the obtained results, the appropriate welding parameters were designed to realize the real experiments of the laser welding of dissimilar Ti-Al alloy sheets by the TruDisk 4002 disk laser
. The quality of the prepared weld joints was evaluated by light microscopy, EDX analysis, X-ray diffraction analysis, tensile testing, and microhardness measurements.
Design of solder / substrate joint was carried out on solid-state disk laser
with a maximum power of 2 kW from the Trumpf company.

She added that if the initial colour of the pump light is tunable, for example that provided by a semiconductor disk laser
, we can achieve tuning of the Raman laser colour.
The disk laser
is a brilliant combination of a solid-state laser and a semiconductor laser.
"In the next five years, the disk laser
will be the standard solid-state laser in the CW high power domain," says Ederer.
'Our green laser is based on our infrared disk laser
According to TRUMPF's Frank Geyer, product manager, Laser Systems, this disk laser
can productively handle many 3D cutting applications.
Today, a 4-kW disk laser
is about $250,000, and prices keep coming down." He adds that the introduction of Trumpf's next-generation disk laser
later in 2012 will further the cost savings for customers.
For automotive, a 1.5mm steel (22MnB5+AS150) sheet was welded to a 2mm aluminium alloy (AA6016-T4) sheet using a disk laser
beam source at 3.75kW laser beam power in a welding process with speeds of 5.2m/min.
