Scanlab integrates polygon scanner business from Belgium
by David Fleschen
TecInvest Holding AG, the parent company of SCANLAB GmbH and Next Scan Technology BVBA, is realigning its organization in the polygon scanner segment. Next Scan Technology (NST) will be integrated into the Puchheim-based scan system experts at the beginning of 2022. SCANLAB's experienced sales team will handle product marketing and customer service. Operating under the name SCANLAB BV, the proven team of developers in Belgium will now be able to focus exclusively on further evolution of the polygon scanners.
Polygon scan systems are renowned for their extremely high scan speeds, and are particularly well suited to line-by-line, flat laser processing of diverse materials. By using polygon scanners industrial productivity can be sped up in applications such as micro-structuring of touchscreens and solar cells or processing of electronic components.
The polygon scanner segment is a future-oriented field which, due to its technological complexity, places high demands on sales and development. In order to bundle resources and better meet individual customer needs in the future, TecInvest Holding has chosen to consolidate its capabilities in this segment. The former NST polygon competence center will be integrated into the SCANLAB Group.
Operating under the new name SCANLAB BV and as part of the SCANLAB development division, NST's experienced Belgian based R&D team will focus on the further development of polygon scan systems, and SCANLAB takes over marketing, sales and support activities. "I can see only advantages in the reorganization of the polygon scanner business. We can now process specific customer inquiries more quickly and effectively, and our technology experts are free to concentrate fully on the technical side of things," explains Dr. Holger Schlüter, Head of Business Development at SCANLAB GmbH and the new contact for polygon scanners.
