Coherent's next generation direct diode laser series, the HighLight D-series, delivers both high power and an increased range of "smart" output beam shapes, making it the ideal source for heat treating, cladding and welding applications. All at faster speeds, greater deposition rates and larger areas.
In cladding and heat treating, 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 cladding, the HighLight D-series yields a higher material deposition rate (up to 18lbs/hour), allowing the laser to "paint-on" metal.
The newest member of this series, the HighLight 10000D provides up to 10kW of direct-diode power at 975nm, 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 (275mm) working distance. The HighLight D-Series is also offered with4 kW and 8kW of power at 975nm.
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.
- Models offer variable line beam lengths of 4mm and 36mm
- An optional beam shaping acessory can expand the beam width dimensions from 1mm up to 12mm
