Laser provider Coherent Inc. has acquired O.R. Lasertechnologie GmbH, a developer of compact, high-precision tools for laser additive manufacturing.

“The acquisition of Rofin-Sinar made Coherent into a major force in laser machine tools, and O.R. Lasertechnologie now gives us a complementary product line that specifically increases our solutions portfolio in additive manufacturing,” said Thomas Merk, executive vice president and general manager of industrial lasers and systems at Coherent. “Additionally, their products will seamlessly integrate with our current offering because the O.R. Lasertechnologie approach is congruent with the Coherent philosophy. ... We see this as key to enabling lasers to displace other legacy manufacturing technologies in a variety of industries. For example, these advantages have already allowed O.R. Lasertechnologie to enjoy success with their solutions for dental and medical device manufacturing.”

O.R.’s products include direct metal deposition and selective layer-melting technologies, as well as systems for cutting, welding, marking, and engraving. Applications include dental, medical, jewelry, automotive, and aerospace. Coherent is a provider of laser and laser-based solutions for scientific, commercial, and industrial applications.
