Since its inception in 1992, LIMO GmbH has been one of the world’s leading manufacturers of optics and beam shaping solutions, as well as a pioneer of groundbreaking new photonics production technologies. The company develops and produces high-precision micro-optics for diode lasers, industrial laser systems for innovative materials processing, and complete optical systems for efficient production processes that use linear laser beam profiles. In the field of optical components, LIMO is currently one of the world’s major suppliers of glass cylindrical lenses thanks to its highly productive wafer-based manufacturing technology. With its technically sophisticated optics and laser system solutions, the company serves customers from all over the world in a wide range of different industries, including the laser, display production, semiconductor manufacturing and automotive industries, and the fields of measurement engineering, plastics processing and medical technology. LIMO is headquartered in Dortmund, Germany, and currently employs 230 people. The company has been part of the Focuslight Group since March 2017.
LIMO equips LASERS with the power to serve as an industrial tool compatible with a wide range of different industrial manufacturing applications. It takes optical components and beam shaping solutions to optimally adapt laser light for use by customers, thereby ensuring that each and every photon has a purpose!
LIMO’s industrial laser system Activation Line IR unlocks new dimensions in materials and surface processing, and can both improve materials and surfaces while also making them compatible with new applications.
The technology uses long, narrow laser lines to process large areas uniformly and with high precision. Because processing takes place simultaneously, it also delivers a major productivity boost. Thanks to its scalability, the Activation Line IR is suitable for use in industrial production operations that process over 1 million m2 in area per year. With its ultra-compact design, the system is easily integrated into existing production lines (e.g., in in-line and roll-to-roll processes).
