nLight acquires plasmo Industrietechnik, adds industrial capabilities

Semiconductor and fiber laser company nLight has acquired plasmo Industrietechnik GmbH, an automated quality assurance and diagnostic solutions provider based in Austria. Plasmo’s solutions primarily serve the welding and additive manufacturing markets.

Plasmo is a technology leader in process monitoring and quality assurance systems for laser-based manufacturing processes,” said Jake Bell, general manager for industrial lasers at nLight. “Combining lasers with plasmo’s real-time process monitoring solutions provide customers with a significant advantage as they develop, qualify, and produce increasingly complex laser-printed or welded parts, particularly for high-volume electric vehicle production.”
