LUMATEC Specializing in high-performance optical technology since
Our company's story began in 1976 with an innovation, the first
flexible laser light guide. A few years later we developed the
first infrared coagulator. It significantly simplified medical
procedures involving tissue ablation. In those early years, we
catered exclusively to the life sciences sector.
In time our company branched out, going on to patent liquid light
guides that inspired a host of unprecedented industrial
applications. Our innovative UV light guides are a case point: Far
more efficient at transmitting light than conventional silica
fibers, they are also a good deal more affordable. That combination
makes them the solution of choice for curing adhesives used in
industrial manufacturing processes.
The next logical step for LUMATEC was to add high-performance light
sources to the product range. Today we provide superb UV light
sources that serve customers well in non-destructive testing
applications. Our multispectral light sources are also an excellent
fit for forensics, where they help detect traces and collect
evidence. These powerful scientific analysis tools also serve
