Dilas has announced its latest compact, fibre-coupled, continuous wave diode laser system, called the Evolution.

In a 19-inch rack-mountable chassis and based on Dilas' water-cooled tailored bar technology, the Evolution is available at up to 600W CW at 976nm and with a stable beam quality of 22mm mrad.

With it comes Dilas' new standardised diode laser control unit (DLC). It can be used in a cross platform strategy for all of Dilas' industial diode laser systems. The DLC provides external interfaces such as the common analogue/digital interface, BUS interfaces and remote access option for easy analyses and parameter settings.

Evolution can be combined with Dilas' processing heads, offering camera and pyrometer options, and allowing the closed-loop operation of the system in pre-defined welding-temperature ranges for relevant applications in medical device manufacturing and automotive. It is also available with an optional fibre-input galvo-scanner featuring a field of operation in which the laser spot can be freely addressed.
