April 3, 2008, Ottawa, Canada--LightMachinery Inc. has announced that it has concluded an agreement with GSI Group (Rugby, England) to purchase the Impact and LaserMark product lines.

Impact and LaserMark product lines are both based on transversely excited atmospheric-pressure (TEA) short-pulse CO2 laser technology, originally developed by Lumonics Inc. (Ottawa, Canada) and currently manufactured by GSI Group in the U.K. Impact Series lasers are primarily used for fine processing of non-metallic/polymer materials. LaserMark Series lasers are a well-established solution for fast, on-the-fly marking of pharmaceutical and electronic products and consumer packaging.
