Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
LIEGE, Belgium, Aug. 13, 2020 — LASEA, a designer and manufacturer of precision lasers, has purchased majority shares of the OPTEC company. OPTEC, based in San Diego and Frameries, Belgium, designs and builds laser micromachining systems for use in the medical and electronics sectors as well as for safety marking.

With the acquisition, LASEA accumulates more than 50 years of experience in pulsed lasers, and nearly 30 years of experience in ultrashort pulse lasers, LASEA CEO Axel Kupisiewicz said. OPTEC develops ultrashort pulse (USP) lasers and performs precision machining of polymer materials. In its work with USP lasers and polymer materials machining (using excimer, or short-pulse UV lasers), the company performs athermal processes capable of micron-size precision.

excimer laser
A rare-gas halide or rare-gas metal vapor laser emitting in the ultraviolet (126 to 558 nm) that operates on electronic transitions of molecules, up to that point diatomic, whose ground state is essentially repulsive. Excitation may be by E-beam or electric discharge. Lasing gases include ArCl, ArF, KrCl, KrF, XeCl and XeF.
