Global leader in laser technology, Rofin-Sinar UK has rebranded as Luxinar, marking a new chapter in the company’s 20-year history.
The move, which takes effect from 25 June 2019, will allow the company to further strengthen its portfolio of market leading sealed CO2 lasers and new, cutting-edge femtosecond laser, as well as maintain the company’s growth which has gone from strength to strength in recent years. Continuing to operate from its purpose-built manufacturing facility in Kingston upon Hull, UK, Luxinar employs more than 180 people – both in the UK and overseas, with operations in China, South Korea, Germany, Italy and the USA.
Managing Director, Klaus Leitner, made the announcement at this year’s Laser World of Photonics exhibition, where several new products were also unveiled, reflecting the company’s commitment to ongoing innovation.
Commenting on the announcement, Klaus said: “This is a really exciting time for our company as we move into our next chapter, building on our proud heritage to drive further innovation in the laser industry as a proudly independent business.
“While our name has changed, the core of our business remains the same. Our products are some of the most technologically sophisticated in the world, and they exist because of the people at the heart of Luxinar. With that foundation, we are continuing to pioneer cutting-edge laser technology, helping our customers across the world to sharpen their competitive edge.”
Among Luxinar’s range of new lasers are the LXR® 100, a 100W femtosecond laser, and the OEM 100iX, a 1kW CO2 laser for higher speed processing.
