The TruPulse laser from TRUMPF (Farmington, CT) is a pulsed solid-state laser that allows the average power to be briefly exceeded and increases the pulse frequency. The product range is based on a modular supply structure, and the average power ranges from 20 to 150 watts at a maximum pulse power of up to 10 kilowatts. Within this range, beam qualities of 4 to 25 mm•mrad are possible.

The maximum mean power and pulse energy, focus, and beam quality can be adjusted depending on the requirements of the application. Focused spot sizes from 50 to 300 μm are possible. Selectable pulse width between 0.2 and 50 ms and pulse energies from 0.2 to 90 joules allow for multiple applications.
