Intense has released its Hermes DDL, a turnkey Direct Diode Laser system. Powered by Intense's QWI enabled high temperature QCW stack technology, Hermes DDL is the company's first turnkey industrial laser system. It includes a compact, turnkey laser that comes fully integrated with drive electronics and optics capable of delivering up to 1.5kW of power at various programmable pulse lengths and duty cycles. The laser is ideally suited for mounting on gantry type workstations or can be easily adapted for robotic applications.
The diode laser is designed for such industrial applications as coating removal, material ablation, thin film materials processing, fabric cutting, and polymer welding. The company uses similar configurations as the basis for customer defence systems, such as imaging, lidar, and countermeasures.
