Laser Mech and Vytek settle trademark dispute

June 24, 2013
Laser Mech's trademark rights in its FiberCut mark are recognized, but other settlement terms kept confidential

Novi, MI - Laser Mechanisms Inc. (Laser Mech), headquartered here, and Fitchburg, MA-based Vinyl Technologies Inc. (Vytek), announce they have settled their six-month federal court trademark dispute.

Laser Mech filed claims against Vinyl Technologies Inc. alleging unfair competition under federal and state laws, and trademark infringement, among other claims. Throughout the case, Vytek has denied all claims.

The charges stem from Vinyl Technologies' recent adoption, use, and promotion of the mark "FiberCut" in connection with selling complete laser systems, which were alleged to be likely to cause confusion with the "FiberCut" trademark used by Laser Mech since 2009 in connection with its well known laser processing heads.

Vytek and Laser Mech have been able to work together to amicably resolve their dispute in a manner acceptable to both parties and which recognizes Laser Mech's trademark rights in its "FiberCut" mark. Both companies have agreed to keep the terms of the settlement confidential.

Founded in 1980, Laser Mechanisms Inc. is a designer and manufacturer of laser beam delivery components and articulated arm systems for high power CO2, YAG, fiber lasers and other wavelengths to suit all facets of industrial applications.
