Innovative for customers

The needs and priorities of our customers are the measure of all things at Scansonic.

Every day we are challenged by user requirements for production lines. We bring our expertise in laser brazing, welding, hardening, seam tracking and process monitoring to the table. And drive new technologies forward.

Close cooperation with customers leads to tailor-made products created for tough series-production challenges and the most complex tasks. During the course of a project, we transition from supplier to professional partner. This requires creativity and commitment – but if you aim to be the best, you can never be satisfied with mediocrity
