Nonmetal laser cutting systems maker eurolaser (Lüneburg, Germany) has been selected as one of the winners of this year's TOP 100 innovation competition. The winners were announced at an award ceremony on June 28, 2019, that took place as part of the 6th German Medium-Sized Business Summit held in Frankfurt, Germany. In the competition, an independent jury examines the innovation management of medium-sized companies and their success on the basis of holistic scientific criteria. The company won in their first participation.
Since 1994, eurolaser has been developing, producing, and selling laser systems for precise cutting of textiles, plastics, acrylic, and wood—more than 1000 systems are in use worldwide. Today, the company employs more than 100 people.
The company convinced the TOP 100 jury with its offer to customers for material certification. Material manufacturers send their samples to the application center in Lüneburg. There, specialists test the laser cutting properties and determine the most favorable cutting parameters. The material receives a certificate of laser suitability and the information is stored in a central database. This database provides users with important information to set their individual cutting parameters and to work optimally with the company's cutting systems right from the start.
The focus of the competition is on the following characteristics: openness to new ideas, tolerance of mistakes, and a constant effort to make things new and different. In total, the award-winning companies plan to create around 18,000 new jobs between 2018 and 2020.
