Company Milestones

From an engineering office to a developer of systems

Our company has grown dynamically since its set up in early 2000. Our success story began with the development of new processes that spearhead the utilization of laser technology in industrial applications. Shortly after our company was founded, we developed a solution for precise seam tracking in laser brazing applications ­ from the idea to the finished product. Furthermore we established innovative systems for laser hardening, remote laser welding and optical sensing applications. Through acquisitions in shares of other high tech companies we grew to a corporate group, in order to offer intelligent solutions in attractive niches in the industrial sector.
