STN Series High Power 450nm Blue Lasers

Our industrial high power blue lasers leverage fundamental physics and their high-brightness, high-power design to produce the fastest, highest quality laser materials processing, including laser welding and additive manufacturing of copper, gold, aluminum and other industrially important metals.

The high power blue laser welds copper faster and better than any alternative solution. This advantage springs from fundamental physics: copper absorbs blue light better than it absorbs infrared radiation or other colors of light. Aluminum, gold and other important industrial metals also absorb more blue than they do other wavelengths of light. That basic fundamental physical advantage leads to performance advantages for welding copper, welding aluminum, 3D printing, and other materials processing applications.

450nm blue laser

Qualitatively

  • High quality low to spatter-free welding
  • Dramatically improves process performance and process window
  • Enables welding processes not possible or with low yields with IR

Quantitatively

  • 2x to 10x metal processing performance of IR fiber lasers that are industry-standard
  • Blue wavelength offers superior performance over green as well

Advantages of Blue Laser Processing:

IR lasers have always had difficulty welding copper due to low absorptivity (~5%) (need high peak power) and high thermal diffusivity. As a result, IR lasers can only operate in keyhole mode generating and there are following limits:

  • High spatter
  • High porosity and defects
  • Poor mechanical & electrical variability
  • Poor yields
  • High difficulties to weld dissimilar metals (Cu/Al & Cu/SS)
