May 30--Corelase Oy, a European manufacturer of high-power fiber laser products, has announced a partnership with Ergolase Inc. to expand its presence in the U.S.
Corelase, based in Tampere, Finland, manufactures high-power fiber-delivered diode and fiber lasers for materials processing applications. Ergolase is a start-up in Santa Clara, CA, dedicated to applying emerging laser technologies to high growth markets, Vittorio Fossati-Bellani, president and CEO of Ergolase, said that the robustness and simplicity of fiber lasers make them ideal solutions for a number of large industrial markets.
On the new partnership, Harry Asonen, president of Corelase Oy, says that Fossati-Bellani's long experience at promoting new technologies and applications at Coherent makes him uniquely qualified to take Corelase' technology into the U.S. market. Both partners agree that the timing is ripe for those companies that already have the fiber laser technology well in hand and act aggressively to penetrate the market. "Our aim is to become the supplier of choice for both pulsed and CW high-power fiber lasers, and this partnership brings us a step closer to that goal," added Asonen.
