Photonics technologies are used extensively in advanced manufacturing to reduce costs and improve manufacturing processes.

Main segments are:

  • Precision laser systems for cutting, drilling, welding, with the ability to produce high-quality components and assemblies precisely and repeatedly.
  • Laser surface structuring for easy-to-clean, anti-bacteria and decorative metal surfaces.
  • Optical lithography for mass production of semiconductor chips.
  • Additive manufacturing, or 3-D printing builds parts on demand producing less waste compared with traditional subtractive processes and reducing warehouse costs.
  • Hyperspectral imaging for identifying the chemical properties of materials across the electromagnetic spectrum for process monitoring a wide range of products.
