Precitec Group - The market's choice.

Precitec has gained an international reputation for being an expert in providing complex system solutions for laser material processing and for optical measuring technology. Cutting heads for CO2- and Nd:YAG applications with long life, non-contact distance sensors that have proved to be reliable in many thousands of applications ensure that optimum cutting qualities are achieved. Additional integral sensors increase process safety and reduce processing time to a minimum. Electronic units used for sensor signal processing, linear drive and process control round off our product range.

In the area of laser welding technology Precitec offers a comprehensive range of processing heads with integral sensor systems for non-contact seam tracking and online process control. In addition, Precitec manufactures process sensors for industrial adhesive technology.

The Precitec Optronic GmbH has been working successfully with the Precitec Group in the optical measurement technology sector for almost 20 years now. The product spectrum ranges from systems for range finding and thickness gauges for multi-layered samples to medical equipment.

Precitec Group - Worldwide accessible. Precitec Group has a worldwide distribution network which guarantees that our customers receive reliable support while ensuring short replacement part lead times. In Europe, Asia and Australia trained representatives are available to deal with customers queries.
