High-power direct-diode laser (HPDDL)
4 - 8 kW | D-Series
4 kW and 8 kW Direct-Diode laser power with flexible beam shape, ideal for heat treating, cladding and welding applications.
Coherent's next generation 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 18 lbs/hour), allowing the laser to "paint-on" metal.
The newest member of this series, the HighLight 8000D provides up to 8 kW of direct-diode power at 975 nm, and is the most powerful 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 HighLight D-Series is also offered with 4 kW of power at 975 nm.
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 4 mm to 36 mm.
An optional beam shaping accessory can expand the 1 mm beam width dimension to 2 mm, 3 mm, 4 mm, 5 mm, 6 mm, 8 mm or 12 mm.
