A passion for laser micromachining and material processing
“One of LaserMicronics’ most important recruitment criteria is curiosity.” Managing Director Lars Ederleh expects more than just first class technical qualifications from the members of his team. “This goes all the way back to 1989.” That was when LaserMicronics began under the previous name of Elaser GmbH. Even then, the company was responsible for developing new production methods using lasers, acquiring the necessary qualifications, and implementing them in job-shop contracts. The team now consists of 17 highly qualified staff including development engineers and physicists.
Located at company headquarters in Garbsen/Germany, LaserMicronics manufactures on a broad range of UV, IR, Excimer and CO2 laser systems. On behalf of the laser specialist LPKF Laser & Electronics AG, LaserMicronics takes on consulting work for process development and optimization, as well as running its own Applications Center. In addition, LaserMicronics also uses its expertise as a job-shop manufacturer for an enormously wide range of customers in the electronics industry. In extreme cases, clients only require it to produce one single prototype, at other times, products are produced in batches of hundreds of thousands.
The company also has an office in Erlangen. This is where the company provides its highly sought after laser plastic welding services. This technology is particularly in demand in the automotive and medical technology sectors thanks to the winning laser plastic welding features: including reliable and hygienic weld seams, and continuous process monitoring.
“We have realized countless products for our clients in the past 20 years. A number of applications have already been running for several years,” comments Ederleh. This huge wealth of experience forms the platform for LaserMicronics’ competence in laser micromachining and material processing.
Ederleh fondly recalls a nail-biting night-and-day production project from 2007. One of LaserMicronics’ clients, the audio specialist Sennheiser, had just completed the test phase for the further development of one of the world’s smallest microphone systems “MKE 1”, but only just before the start of the music trade fair in Frankfurt. The results were revolutionary, but the compact form of the innovative microphone could only be realized with tiny, laser-depanelled printed circuit boards. Within less than two days, Sennheiser and LaserMicronics had produced the first series samples and delivered them punctually for the major gala. “This is only possible when we and our customers combine all of our ambition, commitment and expertise,” recalls Ederleh when he looks back on two continuous days and nights of work.
It is always worth getting into contact with LaserMicronics – and particularly at “productronica” 2013 in Munich. LaserMicronics is showcasing its services on the LPKF stand in Hall B3, Stand 105, where it will be running the prize draw featuring the top prizes of three iPod touch 32 GB.
