    Presented at PICALO 2008

    The absorptance of real metallic engineering surfaces used in Laser Material Processing depends strongly upon the particular surface conditions, including the degree of roughness and oxidation. In this paper the influence of surface topography on Nd:YAG/Nd:YLF laser absorptance has been studied, both experimentally and theoretically, on a set of randomly selected as-received metallic engineering surfac...

    Presented at PICALO 2008

    Northrop Grumman / Cutting Edge Optronics has developed a line of microchannel-cooled laser diode arrays in which the coolant is electrically isolated from the current path. As a result, these arrays do not require the use of deionized water. The thermal performance of these arrays is presented and, in one case, shown to far exceed the performance of standard copper microchannel-cooled packages. This sets them apart from other non-DI microchannel coolers currently on the market which typically have worse thermal performance than copper MCCs. These newly-developed coolers are compatible with other technologies developed by NGCEO that enable long lifetimes under harsh operating conditions. In particular, these arrays can be assembled using hard-solder technology that enables power-cycled and high-current operation. The soldering technology also generates arrays that are easily lensed and satisfy a wide range of direct diode needs, including welding, marking, and complex line generation applications. These microchannel-cooled arrays represent an important next step in the solid state laser industry. They allow for much simpler (non-deionized) cooling systems while maintaining excellent thermal performance and lifetime.

    Presented at PICALO 2008

    Sealed off CO2 lasers are proven in industry for high volume manufacturing applications such as cutting and drilling, processing of glass and ceramics, and flexography. Cutting of thin metal, plastic or organic materials like leather, wood, paper textiles has become an established application in the market. Cutting of glass and PCB materials is only now becoming mature. Laser users vary from job shop and automotive to semiconductor manufacturing; from dusty and oily manufacturing floors to clean room environments. In comparison to High Power CO2 lase...

    This article presents investigations carried out on the generation of metallic 3D structures. In order to generate 3D complex structures in laser cladding, it is important to control the deposition process. In this article, we present our new results on the process control design and implementation for direct manufactu...

    Laser Deposition techniques are gaining wider acceptance within manufacturing industries for both repair and rapid manufacture of metal components. The Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENS®) process is one of the leading techniques in this field. Multiple LENS systems are now employed at DoD and other facilities, repairing a variety of high-performance components. In this role, LENS can be employed to shorten overhaul cycle times, and in some cases ex...
