Philips Photonics’ infrared power systems offer attractive solutions in many application fields of industrial thermal processing. They deliver infrared output power of tens of watts up to tens of kilowatts onto a well-defined target area without complex beam shaping optics or scanning units. The energy density on the work piece ranges between traditional lasers and lamps/LEDs.
The systems are based on modular building blocks of high power VCSEL arrays. Simple and rugged modules in a compact form factor enable easy integration in a variety of production processes.
Philips Photonics offers custom made solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of the respective process customers want to address.
Main application domains are:
- Tailored heating applications for thermal processing such as drying, annealing, curing, melting and others
- Optical pumping of solid state lasers
