LASE was founded on May 15th by the present CEO Dipl.-Ing. Achim Klingberg in Hünxe (Germany) in 1990. He was pioneering in the development and usage of laser measurement technology in the heavy industry. One of the first business deals was the delivery of 1D laser distance meters for the fill level detection of ladles to the smelter company “Krupp Mannesmann” in Duisburg. In this task lasers had to be able to measure on hot surfaces and these lasers also had to be protected against extreme heat.
In this commission it was the task to develop an appropriate solution together with the customer. In the following years the product range has been extended. In the year 2001 2D laser scanners have been added and later, in 2005, the first 3D laser scanner has also been released by LASE. In order to process those complex measurement data from the 2D and 3D applications, the company LASE Systemtechnik GmbH was founded by Dipl.-Ing. Lars Ambrosy in Bremen (Germany).
Three years later in 2004 both businesses have been consolidated under the umbrella of the company LASE Industrielle Lasertechnik GmbH – the location in Bremen is kept as further branch.
The range of products reaches from punctual distance measurements to complex laser measurements system – mostly in difficult operating conditions. The main field of business activity is the production and distribution of components and system solutions as well as the development of customized software applications. Furthermore our team of experienced engineers and technicians provide competent support – starting from initial consulting to proper commissioning.
LASE's measuring systems are used worldwide mainly for port and crane applications, profile and volume measurements in stockpiles or bunkers, and for measuring steel products. Since 2007, internationalisation has also been stepped up, establishing a sales office in Shanghai (China) in 2008 and a joint venture company, Feal Pvt. Ltd. in Calcutta, in India in 2010. In addition, many new distributors were acquired worldwide. In addition to internationalisation, new business areas have been increasingly developed since 2002. While in the beginning the focus was solely on the steel industry, today the port and mining business areas account for a significant share of turnover.
For more than 30 years LASE is developing, producing and distributing laser measurement systems, laser scanners, distance meters and different components for several kinds of industries. Our customers use the laser-based measurement systems in order to improve the quality of their products and services as well as to enhance process productivity.
Quality and safety is the primary goal of our actions – in terms of a permanent customer satisfaction we want to meet all your requirements about our products and services.
For this reason we are proud to tell that we are certified to ISO 9001:2015 and SCC** 2011.
