Biba: So we’re going to start with cleansing, a...

TeraDiode now shipping multikilowatt, ultra-high-brightness direct-diode lasers

High-brightness direct-diode laser technology developer TeraDiode has begun shipping its multikilowatt, high-brightness TeraBlade lasers to major machine tool and automotive welding manufacturers in Europe and Japan. Wilmington, MA – High-brightness direct-diode laser technology developer TeraDiode has begun shipping its multikilowatt, high-brightness TeraBlade lasers to major machine tool and automotive welding manufacturers in Europe and Japan. The shipments usher in the third generation of metal cutting and welding industrial lasers, opening applications that were cost-prohibitive for previous generations. Related: A high-power diode laser primer The TeraBlade platform pairs semiconductor diode laser array chips and wavelength beam combination (WBC), an MIT-patented technology that enables the combination of energy from thousands of individual emitters into a single laser beam while preserving the beam quality needed for cutting and welding applications. WBC also preserves the wall-plug efficiency of direct-diode lasers while delivering the high brightness previously achieved only by lasers requiring more complicated gain/feedback architectures. The TeraBlade lasers sh...
