InnoLas Revenue Up 60% in 2012
KRAILLING, Germany, Feb. 26, 2013 — Despite challenging conditions in the solar market, laser systems provider InnoLas Systems GmbH reported 60 percent revenue growth for 2012.
The company achieved record revenue of €40 million (about $68 million), with more than 90 percent of that generated from sales in the photovoltaic industry, a segment that experienced another difficult year with generally declining investments from cell manufacturers.

“This industry saw flat or declining investments in 2012, so obviously InnoLas Systems is able to offer something that sets us apart from our competition,” said CEO Richard Grundmüller.
In the solar industry, efficiency has become the crucial differentiator. InnoLas Systems’ ILS laser machines are designed for advanced processes like PERC (passivated emitter and rear cell) and selective emitter doping, which increase efficiency of standard solar cells by up to 1 percent. For thin-film solar modules, the Impala laser system offers high-precision scribing to reduce a module’s “dead area” for increased cell efficiency.
