COHERENT at the BLECHEXPO 2011(PresseBox) (Dieburg, )
In addition to a wide range of beam sources, Coherent provides a suite of application specific laser machining centers that offer the industry's best performance in a compact size. These tools, available with a wide range of lasers from 150W to 1000W, provide the lowest cost of operation of any flatbed laser cutting system available today, and are designed for cutting a wide range of materials - from metal to organics including plastic, acrylic and wood.
The company, which is headquartered in Santa Clara, California, has R & D and manufacturing facilities at a number of locations around the world - in Europe these are in Germany and Great Britain. Both sites play a central role for the California headquartered company.
The name Coherent has become a synonym for the combination of superior reliability and cutting-edge performance.
Innovative and customized laser sources, laser tools, leading-edge beam forming and beam guidance systems as well as laser beam measurement and control equipment.
Coherent's major products include
Laser Machining Tools . Diode lasers . CO2 lasers . Diode-pumped solid-state lasers . Optically pumped semiconductor lasers . Ultra short-pulse lasers . Tunable CW-lasers . Excimer lasers . Laser beam analysis and instrumentation . Optical systems
