Coherent Introduces Compact, 300W CO2 Laser

July 10, 2003
Santa Clara, CA., July 11, 2003. Coherent has introduced the DIAMOND K-300-a compact, hard-sealed, 10.6-micron, 300-watt CO2 laser. The DIAMOND K-300 has also been designed with an improved, repackaged power module. This turnkey package allows users to install the laser by simply connecting it to a water supply and electrical utilities.

Santa Clara, CA., July 11, 2003. Coherent has introduced the DIAMOND K-300-a compact, hard-sealed, 10.6-micron, 300-watt CO2 laser. The DIAMOND K-300 has also been designed with an improved, repackaged power module. This turnkey package allows users to install the laser by simply connecting it to a water supply and electrical utilities. And all controls are accessible from a remote-control unit.

The DIAMOND K-300 is the latest addition to Coherent's successful DIAMOND laser family and will replace the company's 250-watt version, the DIAMOND K-250. "The improvement in power will allow end-users to increase production speeds, product output, and maintain high production quality," said Stephen Lee, Coherent product line manager. "And since we've engineered the K-300 to fit the same package size as our former 250W product, it's a simple drop-in replacement."

The new K-300 laser shares the hallmarks of Coherent's DIAMOND K Series lasers, including the diffusion-cooled, slab technology that allows them to be compact, sealed and scalable within a single resonator. DIAMOND lasers also feature high peak power, square pulse shapes, fast rise times, excellent mode quality, proven reliability and no gas recharging. These characteristics combine for a fast-processing, rugged, long lifetime, no-maintenance laser that is ideal for applications such as non-metal cutting, thin-metal cutting, precision welding and ceramics processing.
