SCANLAB acquires Next Scan Technology

“We see great potential in the polygon scanner market, so it’s natural to position ourselves here accordingly. Next Scan Technology’s expertise suits our approach well and our products complement each other superbly,” says SCANLAB CEO Georg Hofner regarding the successful acquisition.

“Amid rising demand for polygon scanners, Next Scan Technology needed to increase manufacturing capacity and set up worldwide sales, marketing and customer services, while strengthening its management team. SCANLAB’s global infrastructure and operational excellence makes it a perfect match to address new market opportunities – via smart cross-over designs using galvo, polygon and mirror F-theta technology,” comments Next Scan Technology managing director Lars Penning on the future collaboration. “Together we’ll offer the best of both worlds in scanner systems for challenging high-throughput applications.”

Ultra-short-pulse (USP)  lasers are ideal for ultra-precise micro-machining of diverse materials, because cold ablation allows particularly fine, targeted material removal. To achieve industrial-scale productivity, USP lasers are best combined with ultra-fast scanners – e.g. a polygon scanner. Polygon scanners are particularly advantageous for line oriented full-surface processing of work pieces – at fine resolutions and with freely definable patterns and structures. Thanks to the high speed, these systems can considerably slash material processing times. USP laser processing applications range from structuring touchscreen surfaces or solar cells, to micro-drilling and processing of electronic components, glass and plastics, as well as sensor manufacturing.
