4JET spins off micromachining business

German laser system integrator 4JET Technologies has transferred its micromachining business to an independent entity.

After a year of record sales in 2015, German laser system integrator 4JET Technologies GmbH (Alsdorf, Germany) has transferred its micromachining business to an independent entity—4JET microtech GmbH & Co KG.

4JET Technologies will focus on the significant opportunities in laser cleaning and marking systems for the tire and automotive industry. The company has seen double-digit growth in this segment for seven consecutive years.

Today, 4JET supplies equipment for mold cleaning, tire marking, or other material processing solutions to every major international tire manufacturer. Customers also include other automotive suppliers and leading OEMs.

The micromachining business develops solutions for processing glass and solar cells for international blue chip customers. This segment has been operating as a separate business unit and grown steadily since the downturn of the solar equipment industry in 2012. It will now be transferred into a stand-alone company.

The two companies will continue to cooperate in the Alsdorf facility under a cooperation and shared service agreement. Management will remain in place at both units.
