HIGHYAG opens expanded company facility

Laser material processing supplier HIGHYAG Lasertechnologie GmbH (HIGHYAG) opened its new facility on March 25, 2014, which is located on the Europarc Dreilinden business campus in Kleinmachnow, Germany—just outside of Berlin. Dr. Dietmar Woidke, prime minister of the federal state Brandenburg, and Michael Grubert, mayor of Kleinmachnow, attended the facility's grand opening.

Founded in 1995, the company's product portfolio includes laser processing heads and fiber beam delivery systems used for laser cutting, welding, and brazing. Since 2008, the US-based company II-VI Incorporated has held a majority share in HIGHYAG. In 2013, II-VI Incorporated increased its stake in the company to 100 percent, making the company a wholly owned subsidiary.

Due to rapidly expanding adoption of high-power fiber and direct-diode lasers for advanced manufacturing, the company recognized that its old facility in Stahnsdorf, Germany, would no longer be sufficient enough to meet demand. Construction on the Kleinmachnow facility began in January 2013 and the company moved in about a year later—in mid-January 2014.

The new building has a base area of approximately 5800m2, including a 3500 m2 production hall, two clean rooms, optics laboratories, applications laboratories, and offices.
