Lasertech LSH AB Lasertech started up its operation year 2000 with the aim to become a leading supplier of laser welding services. The company is located in the middle of Sweden in the city of Karlskoga and currently has a total of 19 employees. During the years the business has evolved and consists today of several other laser processing services, including laser marking, laser hardening and laser cladding (LMD). The company also performs non-destructive testing (NDT) both for magnetic and non-magnetic materials. The customer base is widely spread and are including automotive, defence and medical application. From the year 2014 and onward Lasertech has also entered into the industrial AM market. Since start target has been to focus on the metal 3D-printing industry and to become a leading supplier and partner for the industry. During the years with AM the company has been involved in several big projects with well-known customers and is today well established with high competence in the 3D-printing area. During the end of 2018 the company is investing in an all-new “3D-factory” with the aim to set up a world class AM facility. The new factory will be in operation from the start of 2019.

3D printing plant:
Siemens in Finspong is a pioneer in the field of additive manufacturing and has invested in a complete workshop with all physical and digital support systems, filled with advanced 3D-printers for metal. The method applied is called Selective Laser Melting (SLM), one member of the powder bed fusion methods (PBF).
More than 80 full time employees work with the development, execution and quality assurance of the rapid prototyping of advanced gas turbine components, hybrid style repairs, spare parts on demand and manufacturing activities.
We use single and quadruple laser systems for the 3D-printing of mainly nickel base super-alloys for combustion systems and stainless steels. Siemens also develops proprietary special alloys for the hottest possible applications.
Together with colleagues at other Siemens locations we form a global team of AM expertise. We develop in particular solutions in the field of digitalization. (For more information, please see http://www.sit-ab.se.)
