5 kW and 10 kW Direct-Diode laser power with flexible beam shape, ideal for heat treating and cladding applications.
Coherent’s direct-diode laser series, its HighLight D-Series, delivers both high power and an increased range of “smart” output beam shapes, making it the ideal source for laser heat treating, cladding, and welding applications-all at faster speeds, greater deposition rates and larger areas.
In cladding and heat treating applications, the higher power and longer line beam of the HighLight D-Series lasers increase production speeds to new benchmark levels, allowing larger areas to be processed in a single pass.
In laser cladding,the HighLight D-Series yields a higher material deposition rate (up to 20 lbs/hour).
The newest member of this series, the HighLight 10000D provides up to 10 kW of direct-diode power at 975 nm, and is the leading direct-diode laser system currently available with free space beam delivery (no fiber-coupling needed). Free space beam delivery preserves the inherent brightness of the diode laser source and enables the use of an optical system with a large (275 mm) working distance.
The unique design of the HighLight D-Series’ compact laser head enables a wide range of output beam size options that won’t restrict application deployment.
