About

Luxinar head office building

At Luxinar, we have a singular focus: developing laser technology to enhance our world.

Like a laser that channels light into a single, powerful beam, we focus on improving the lives of our customers.  This allows us to create solutions to meet every single challenge – from heavy industry to delicate, high precision applications.  We support the laser technologies of yesterday, focus on today’s and pioneer those of tomorrow.

Luxinar has been at the forefront of laser technology for over 25 years and is a leading manufacturer of sealed carbon dioxide (CO2) laser sources up to 1000W and, more recently, ultrashort pulse laser sources. To date, we have an installed base of over 25000 lasers worldwide.

Our lasers are used in a broad spectrum of industries including automotive, electronics, packaging and textiles and for numerous applications such as  ablating, cutting, drilling, marking, perforating, scribing and welding.

Luxinar – INGENUITY AMPLIFIED.

Our heritage

1998 – 1999

Luxinar, under the name Rofin-Sinar UK Ltd, was established in 1998 in Willerby, Kingston upon Hull, UK, as part of the worldwide Rofin-Sinar group. We shipped the first CO2 laser sources that year, followed by the first MULTISCAN dot matrix laser marker in 1999.

2006

We released more new products over the next few years, including 300W and 600W laser sources and the MULTISCAN vector marker, and our annual turnover exceeded £10M in 2006.

2007

In 2007 we received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation, following the release of our first 600W laser.

2011 – 2014

This was followed by the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Export Growth in 2011. Turnover exceeded £20M per annum in 2012, and we shipped our 10000th unit in 2014. In 2014 the SR series and OEM series replaced the older product ranges.

2016

The SCX 35 was launched in 2016, bringing our entire product range up to date. Following a period of rapid growth, in 2016 we moved to a purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility in Hessle, Kingston upon Hull, UK. Built on two levels, the building provides 7500m2 (81000ft2) of manufacturing space, with room for future expansion. Our facility is located conveniently close to transport links to the rest of the UK and the world.

2017 – 2019

We shipped our 15000th unit and exceeded £30M annual turnover in 2017. The company was acquired by CMR shortly afterwards, as a consequence of our divestment from the group formed with Coherent’s acquisition of Rofin. This prompted the rebranding of our company, and in June 2019 we became Luxinar.

Now

We invest heavily in R&D, and maintain close links with local and national universities. We constantly strive to innovate, to fulfil our customers’ needs, and to adapt to the demands of the market. As an environmentally conscious company, we implement the latest lean manufacturing techniques through our philosophy of continuous improvement. Luxinar Ltd is accredited to ISO 9001:2015 quality standards.
