Pulsar Photonics, a Herzogenrath, Germany-based laser-technology company, completed a seed funding round of undisclosed amount.
High-Tech Gründerfonds made the investment.
Founded in September 2013 as a spin-off of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT), Pulsar Photonics develops machine-tool technology for materials processing that incorporates ultrashort pulse lasers.
Pulse lasers represent a high-precision production tool that boasts an enormous range of potential applications including smartphone display production, stent production, and electronics manufacturing, just to name a few of them.
The company’s goal is to provide micro-machining production systems featuring lasers that can be set up and utilized as efficiently as today’s conventional CNC processing machines.
Pulsar is led by Dr. Jens Holtkamp, Managing Director.
