Based on DILAS' tailored bar technology, the COMPACT-EVOLUTION is a unique turn-key platform of small physical size (19” rack mountable), ease of use and operational versatility. Available at 600W, 200µm, 976nm and 1200W, 300µm, 976nm - these systems are equipped with a standard diode laser control unit used for external interfaces such as the common analog/digital interface, BUS interfaces and remote access option for easy analysis and parameter settings. Easily integrated into production lines, the COMPACT-EVOLUTION can be used for plastic welding, brazing, hardening, thin sheet metal welding and many other applications. In addition, a variety of processing heads are available from simple imaging to pyrometer-controlled Galvo scanning applications. Radial welding can be accomplished using fixed optics or the new quasi-simultaneous rotation welding head.
