DILAS, the diode laser company, announces recently the next generation easy-to-integrate, compact,  fiber-coupled, CW diode laser system; the COMPACT EVOLUTION. 

Designed in a very compact 19” rack-mountable chassis with 3HU, the next generation system release has major platform and interfacing enhancements. Our new standardized diode laser control unit (DLC) can be used in a cross platform strategy for all of DILAS‘ industrial diode laser systems. The DLC provides external interfaces such as the common analog/digital interface, BUS interfaces and remote access option for easy analyses and parameter settings.

The COMPACT EVOLUTION can be combined with DILAS’ processing heads offering camera and pyrometer options, and allowing the closed-loop operation of the system in pre-defined welding-temperature ranges for quality relevant applications in medical device manufacturing and automotive.

Available with an optional fiber-input galvo-scanner featuring a field of operation in which the laser spot can be freely addressed.

The COMPACT EVOLUTION is available up to 600W CW at 976nm wavelength and stable beam quality of 22mm mrad. The improved brightness allows for a variety of applications such as scanner based plastics welding with larger working areas or reduced spot sizes. In addition the COMPACT EVOLUTION is ideal for thin metal welding, heat treatment selective soldering, brazing and scientific applications.

Based on DILAS’ water-cooled tailored bar technology this system does not require DI water.
