Scanlab acquires Blackbird Robotersysteme

Puchheim, Germany - Scanlab AG, a manufacturer of scan systems for laser material processing and medical technology, has acquired all shares of Blackbird Robotersysteme GmbH, a Garching-based producer of innovative control solutions for robotic laser welding equipment.

Both companies have been working together since 2009 and offer a most capable 3D scanning solution for remote laser welding: intelliWELD high-power scan heads controlled by the RobotsyncUnit.

This merger enables even more rapid expansion of the portfolio of laser fabrication solutions for automakers and industrial producers. Blackbird can thus offer a broader and more powerful palette of pre-integrated solution packages for machinery integrators and line builders. Plus, Blackbird is now able to more quickly grow and internationalize its sales and service. 

This merger underscores Scanlab's aim to be the remote laser welding market's top provider of fast and precise beam positioning.

Blackbird Robotersysteme GmbH's location, business structure, and management remain unchanged.
