LPKF settles dispute about patent infringement

Tualatin, OR - LPKF and its Korean customer, Partron Co. Ltd, have agreed to settle a dispute about the infringement of LPKF’s Laser Direct Structuring (LDS) patent.

Partron commits itself to instantly stop the production of LDS parts on non-LPKF laser machines. Partron further agrees to purchase 20 new Fusion3D laser machines from LPKF and to solely use LPKF equipment for its LDS production in the future. In exchange, LPKF will suspend their legal action against Partron.

This mutual agreement between LPKF and Partron allows both companies to further extend their business relationship. It also guarantees that the end customers will benefit from the high quality of the original LDS process.

LPKF Laser & Electronics AG is holder of the patent for LDS, which allows its customers to produce circuit layouts  on complex three-dimensional carrier structures. LPKF manufactures machines and laser systems used in electronics fabrication, medical technology, the automotive sector, and the production of solar cells. Around 20 percent of the workforce is engaged in research and development.
