SCANLAB (2)

As the technology-leading OEM manufacturer of laser scanning systems, SCANLAB AG remains on an international growth path. The company, headquartered in Puchheim near Munich, announces the appointment of Amanda Dobbins as Director of New Business Development for SCANLAB America, focused on developing laser scanning solutions for applications worldwide.

For 25 years SCANLAB has been meeting the needs of its customers worldwide with reliable and industry-proven technology based on German engineering. Since 2003 the company has operated in the US with a local subsidiary. To increase customer support and to better understand the needs of scanning applications, SCANLAB is enlarging the US team.

Amanda Dobbins has 20 years professional experience in working with OEM companies developing systems which utilize lasers, precision optics, and beam steering devices. She was formerly the Director of Sales & Marketing of an optical components manufacturer where she was responsible for new product introductions and collaborations in medical devices and analytical instrumentation. Previously she spent more than a decade involved in applications including laser materials processing, biophotonics, and ophthalmology.

Amanda earned her B.Sc. in Physics from the University of Leicester, UK, in 1995.

SCANLAB AG is celebrating its 25th anniversary and continues growing. Based in the Munich suburb of Puchheim, the OEM manufacturer of laser scan solutions is one of the photonics industry's 'hidden champions'. The scanner specialist's products find use worldwide in countless industrial and medical applications requiring precise positioning of laser beams. Developing galvanometer scanners and control electronics was the company's original focus and remains one of its core competencies. SCANLAB's headquarters is undergoing further expansion to better cope with increasing sales and staff. The ground-breaking ceremony will take place shortly.

Since 1990, SCANLAB has emerged as a technology driver for scan solutions. Dr. Hans J. Langer founded the company shortly after creating EOS GmbH, today's market leader in additive manufacturing (3D printing). Dr. Langer perceived a broad need for high-quality scan solutions such as those EOS used in its own systems. SCANLAB's mission was and is to provide the laser market with these deflection solutions. Then, highly dynamic rotary drives (known as galvanometer scanners) and related electronics first had to be developed. Today, these meanwhile further-refined drives remain core components and competencies of SCANLAB's scan solutions.

The fundamental manufacturing strategy remains unchanged - SCANLAB relies on leading R&D expertise and a broad product palette of galvanometer scanners, optics, hardware, software and control solutions - at a relatively low degree of vertical integration. SCANLAB produces scan systems in high volumes, alongside niche products and customer-specific solutions. This is precisely why Germany remains the undisputed location of choice for not only R&D and production, but also expansion. A ground-breaking ceremony will take place in August 2015 for the third expansion phase of SCANLAB's modern headquarters, adding 5,500 m² of floor space to the already existing 6,500 m². The new building sections will be ready for occupancy by the end of 2016. And the company possesses additional land reserves for future expansions.

SCANLAB CEO Georg Hofner explains the positive developments: "2015 is a milestone not only in terms of our anniversary, but also because we introduced more new products than ever at this year's Laser World of Photonics tradeshow in Munich. Our focus on serving the market as an experienced OEM manufacturer with long-term customer relationships has proven its worth. In general, the photonics industry continues growing while new laser-scanner applications arise worldwide. And the laser market's many new developments, such as ultra-short-pulse (USP) lasers, inspire us to view the future confidently."
