SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 18, 2014 — HighLight 10,000D, a direct-diode laser system from Coherent Inc., delivers higher power, enabling increased throughput for applications in metal cladding and heat treating.
The device outputs 10 kW (at 975 nm) and can be configured to deliver interchangeable beam shapes ranging from 1 to 12 mm and lengths from 6 to 36 mm. When combined with the company’s pressurized or gravity feed powder nozzles and systems, the increased power level enables higher-deposition-rate cladding (>20 lb/h), or the use of larger spot sizes for heat treating.
