Optomec’s (Albuquerque, NM) LENS LDH 3.X laser deposition head features a variable optics system that creates three focused spot sizes to accommodate changes in laser power from 500 W to 3 kW to optimize directed energy deposition (DED) processing across a range of parts and applications.

With improved channeling for water-cooling the head, the LDH 3.X won’t overheat while operating at high powers and for long build times. Adding to its versatility, the head’s quick-connect/disconnect nozzle system allows for interchanging nozzle types depending on application (for example, 4-tip, coax, high overhang).

By enabling users to vary the optics, create multiple focused laser spot sizes, use interchangeable nozzles, and work with a range of laser powers, the laser head is effective for a variety of industrial applications including small to large builds, high deposition rates at high powers, repairs, coatings, and cladding operations. A 0.6-mm focused spot size can be chosen for processing smaller parts or intricate feature building and then switched to 2 mm or 3 mm focused spot sizes for larger builds or clad-type operations.

Models start at $10,000 to upgrade from LDH 2.0. Variable optics and nozzle types are sold separately. Material starter recipes are available to help speed adoption.
