Dilas, the diode laser company, now offers a higher power fiber-coupled diode laser system for materials processing applications with output power of 2.5kW at 980nm.

The SF2500/10 fiber-coupled system is based on micro-channel cooled diode laser bars featuring a compact footprint and convenient aiming beam. With a beam parameter product of 110mm mrad this system delivers 2.5kW through a cladding-mode free QBH high-power 1000µm core diameter fiber, 0.22NA at single wavelength of 980nm.

The stand-alone fibre-coupled diode laser system includes a water-water heat exchanger and diode laser driver inside a compact chassis. Dilas' standardised control unit DLC providing standardized external interfaces.  

With this new high-power diode laser system, Dilas expands into new market applications such as surface treatment (e.g. selective hardening); cladding or high-power brazing. In addition, the 2.5kW system is ideal for scientific research applications that require large spot sizes and uniform intensity profile.
