II-VI DIRECTPHOTONICS, established in 2011, develops, manufactures and sells ultra-high brightness direct diode lasers aiming for industrial manufacturing application, including welding, soldering and cutting currently. II-VI DIRECTPHOTONICS has significantly increased the brightness of fiber coupled direct diode laser systems to best suited material processing application.
Headquartered in Berlin Adlershof, Germany, we develop direct diode laser systems with optical output power levels from a few hundred Watts up to the Kilowatt range, and with a beam parameter product of 7.5 mm mrad. The goal is to replace less efficient laser technologies by eliminating the need for a brightness-enhancing resonator.
Key to entering this competitive market is not only a diode laser system with unprecedented beam quality, but also an architecture that is designed with manufacturability and serviceability in mind. Implemented network capabilities and data logging allows not only remote system diagnostics but also predictable life time management. We are ready for Industrie 4.0. Our team of engineers comes with long experience, both in building high brightness diode lasers, manufacturing automation and digital electronics, assuring state of the art system designs, high reproducibility and reliability.
Being a part of II-VI Incorporated (NASDAQ: II-VI), provides not only the highest degree of vertical integration but also allows offering of complete optical chain solutions from the laser source to the process.
