In booth 117 (hall A2) at LASER World of PHOTONICS 2017 in Munich, Germany (26-29 June), engineered materials and optoelectronic component manufacturer II-VI Inc of Saxonburg, PA, USA (which makes laser components and subsystems) is presenting a broad portfolio of merchant products for all laser technology platforms employed in high-power or precision materials processing.
From ultraviolet to far-infrared, II-VI’s laser optics will be on display along with new products for fiber lasers and advanced laser heads and beam delivery solutions.
II-VI is also showcasing products from epitaxial wafers to semiconductor lasers that can enable new features such as 3D sensing in the next generation of consumer electronics.
New products on display include:
- 18W pump diodes: II-VI’s new high-brightness laser diodes feature a 190µm-wide output facet designed to achieve optimum coupling efficiency into widely used 200µm-core fibers. The increased output power per emitter enables fiber-laser manufacturers to generate higher power levels with a reduced number of emitters.
- 600W direct-diode engine: II-VI’s DirectProcess 900 direct-diode laser engine is now available with 600W continuous output power, in a smaller form factor and with new network interfaces. The firm says that its direct-diode laser engines enable greater energy efficiencies and improved quality of workmanship in aluminum cutting and welding operations.
