Novel optics have been co-developed with Precitec to improve the cutting performance in high-power industrial processing machines. Using PowerPhotonic's direct-write laser micro-machining technology, the compact components are manufactured with precision and high accuracy, delivering the ideal solution for Precitec’s industrial requirements.

“We are very pleased to announce our partnership with Precitec, who are acknowledged to be dominating in the laser cutting market,” said Roy McBride, managing director of PowerPhotonic. “It is an affirmation of our technology, and I look forward to seeing our products being used by Precitec to deliver state-of the-art industrial materials processing solutions.”

PowerPhotonic's fabrication process is being used to create optics that have unparalleled optical efficiency and the ability to easily work with today’s multi-kilowatt lasers. Besides other system improvements, the novel optical components have become a key enabler for new standards in cutting quality.

“By combining core competencies of our companies, we achieved a breakthrough in terms of cutting quality,” said Thilo Wersborg, CEO of Precitec. “Higher thicknesses at significantly reduced cutting edge roughness become today’s state-of-the-art in laser cutting with disc, fiber or direct diode lasers.”
