A new direct-diode laser system from Coherent Inc. offers higher power, which translates into increased throughput for applications in metal cladding and heat treating. The new HighLight 10,000D outputs 10 kW (at 975 nm), and can be configured to deliver a wide variety of interchangeable beam shapes (with widths from 1mm to 12mm, and lengths from 6mm to 36mm) to optimally match specific processing requirements.

When combined with Coherent's pressurized or gravity feed powder nozzles and systems, this increased power level enables higher deposition rate cladding (greater than 20 lb/h), or the use of larger spot sizes for heat treating. In addition, Coherent offers a pyrometer for monitoring work surface temperature for closed-loop control of laser power during heat treatment and cladding.

HighLight customers have access to Coherent's applications development lab and engineering staff. This team helps to configure a system that matches each customer's precise requirements, and can identify optimal processing parameters for cladding, heat treating and welding applications.
