Our company's story began in 1976 with an innovation, the first flexible laser light guide. A few years later we developed the first infrared coagulator. It significantly simplified medical procedures involving tissue ablation. In those early years, we catered exclusively to the life sciences sector.
In time our company branched out, going on to patent liquid light guides that inspired a host of unprecedented industrial applications. Our innovative UV light guides are a case point: Far more efficient at transmitting light than conventional silica fibers, they are also a good deal more affordable. That combination makes them the solution of choice for curing adhesives used in industrial manufacturing processes.
The next logical step for LUMATEC was to add high-performance light sources to the product range. Today we provide superb UV light sources that serve customers well in non-destructive testing applications. Our multispectral light sources are also an excellent fit for forensics, where they help detect traces and collect evidence. These powerful scientific analysis tools also serve researchers well.
Over the years, LUMATEC has earned a reputation for being one of the most innovative providers of specialty lighting instruments. We owe our success to engineering expertise in three areas:
