The availability of high-power blue diode-lasers established a new class of laser sources for materials processing recently. With the significantly shorter wavelength compared to conventional laser sources for materials processing new applications are moving into the range of the feasible. There is a strong demand for welding applications with copper due to the change from internal combustion engines to electric drives, which even prompts laser manufacturers to find complex solutions to obtain a laser source in the wavelength range where copper shows higher absorption. With the appearance of high-power diode-laser bars in the blue wavelength range, proven optical concepts can be adapted for the setup of straightforward blue high-power diode-laser sources for materials processing. In context of the research project “BlauLas”, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the photonic initiative “EFFILAS” [1], Laserline, in cooperation with OSRAM, intends to realize a blue fiber-coupled cw diode-laser with a power exceeding 1 kW. Building on the results of the earlier presented 700 W fiber coupled laser source we present our new blue fiber coupled laser source with output powers surpassing 1 kW. A brief description of the optical concept and setup as well as an outlook on future strategies to increase output power and radiance of blue laser sources based on diode-laser bars are given. Additionally recently carried out application trials with this new powerful laser source are presented.
