TRUMPF opens technology site in Silicon Valley
- December 19, 2016
TRUMPF has opened a new technology and laser centre in Santa Clara, CA. The company says its location in Silicon Valley puts the laboratory close to key customers and partners from sectors such as consumer electronics and e-mobility.
“Our new application laboratory for laser processing, micro applications and coating technology places us firmly at the heart of the U.S. technology industry and brings us close to our customers and partners in this region,” says Peter Leibinger, vice chairman of the managing board of the TRUMPF Group and head of the laser technology/electronics division.
“This means we can examine each customer’s individual requirements and ideas on site. Add to that our many years of experience, and we can identify the optimum process and the right laser or generator for each application.”
The decision to establish a new technology and laser centre in Silicon Valley highlights the importance TRUMPF places on the high-tech California region.
The Santa Clara application laboratory is equipped with continuous wave (CW) lasers, short and ultra-short pulsed lasers, and the very latest beam sources and generators. It joins the other US application laboratories TRUMPF has located in Detroit, MI, and Farmington, CT.
