Diode Laser Systems for Materials Processing: HighLight D-Series

New Diode Laser Systems for Materials Processing Offer Highest Power Yet Available. The HighLight D-Series, a new range of diode laser systems from Coherent, Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) (Nasdaq: COHR), delivers both high power and an increased range of “smart” output beam shapes. In particular, the HighLight 8000D, with output power of 8 kW, is the most powerful, industrial, direct diode laser system currently available with free space beam delivery.

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. Together, these factors translate directly into enhanced laser capabilities in industrial processing applications. Specifically in cladding, it yields a higher material deposition rate (up to 18 pounds/hour), allowing the laser to cover large areas in a short amount of time. Production speed is increased to new benchmark levels in both cladding and heat treating due to the HighLight D-Series’ higher power and longer line beams allowing processing of larger areas in a single pass.

Features

  • Laser systems with 2.8, 4, 6, 8 kW power at 975 nm
  • Supports faster process speeds and higher deposition rates during heat treatment, cladding and welding applications
  • Variable line beam shapes from 1x3 mm to 1x30 mm
  • Line beam width expansion from 1 mm to 3-12 mm
  • Working distance of ~275 mm
  • Industrial, compact laser head with easily interchangeable beam shapes
  • Mobile control panel, remote diagnostics, aiming beam and pyrometer process control options
  • Cladding nozzle and heat treating accessories designed/optimized for HighLight D-Series

 

Various industrial options facilitate ease-of-use of the HighLight D-Series. These include an air knife, which protects the laser from back-splattered material, heat and returned laser light, thus extending system lifetime. A pyrometer for monitoring work surface temperature enables closed-loop control of laser power during heat treatment and cladding. Features to enhance productivity include a laser system control unit with a simple graphical interface, and remote diagnostics that allow system operation to be analyzed by Coherent service personnel over the internet.
