LPW Services now offers contract laser plastic welding

Two years after its foundation, LPW Services in Germany now also offers laser plastic welding services in the field of contract manufacturing.

LPW Services GmbH was founded in 2016. The company offers a worldwide after-sales service for laser plastic welding systems. Both the machines of the parent company Evosys Laser and the systems of other manufacturers are serviced. Contract manufacturing of laser welded plastic parts has now also been added to the product portfolio as a further service.

'Our customers kept asking us whether laser plastic welding technology could also be used for contract manufacturing. Now we are proud to offer this: the customer can test the technology, have small series produced or bridge start-up phases without having to invest his own money,' explained LPW Services Managing Director Konrad Kraus. For the contract manufacturing, extra new employees were hired to carry out the work on Evosys Laser's own equipment. The first projects have already started successfully.
