- IRphotonics Spins Off iCure Line
ST. LAURENT, Quebec, June 29, 2012 — IRphotonics has spun off its iCure product line into wholly owned subsidiary iCure Systems Inc., the company announced recently.
The fiber-optics-based iCure heat-bonds via infrared light for adhesive curing and heating of bond assemblies in automated processes in industrial, medical device, electronics and optoelectronics manufacturing.
The unit, which is based in St. Laurent, will continue to have the same management and will be providing the same products, IRphotonics said.
iCure was a winner of a 2009 Prism Award for photonics innovation in the Photonics Systems category; the awards are co-sponsored by Photonics Media and SPIE and presented during SPIE Photonics West.
