Lasermet is pleased to announce the official opening of the new Research and Development Centre based in Cebu in the Philippines.

This inaugural event took place on 3rd October 2019 and was attended by the new design team, and hosted by the Lasermet Directors at the new 4,000 sqft facility.  Lasermet’s sales team and international distributors from the Middle East, the Far East and Australasia came to take part in this next step of global expansion for Lasermet.

Paul Tozer, Managing Director of Lasermet, announced that he was excited that Lasermet had reached this stage of international development with the help from his team led by Steve Geldard – Lasermet Director and Chairman of Lasermet Inc.

Introducing the new R&D team led by R&D Manager Aljerico Taleon, Paul said “This powerful research and development capability means that the laser safety market and related markets, such as automation and robotics, are set for expansion for Lasermet.  This includes using our patented active laser guarding technology, ‘Laser Jailer’, on our ‘Falcon Active Speed Doors’ used in laser welding and other materials processing applications. Our modular ‘Laser Castle’ laser safety cabins continue to penetrate the market globally especially in aerospace, automotive, research and advanced engineering. The Philippines facility enables us to design and integrate laser safety systems into even more complex and technologically advanced production facilities.”

Paul continued “More growth is planned to provide greater levels of support to our international customer base. We are planning to increase our manufacturing capability as our Research and Development Team increases in numbers. In recent months we have experienced tremendous growth in sales and as we expand our technical resources, I am confident that our international development strategy will be even more successful.”

During the event, Aljerico introduced the engineering team individually and was able to demonstrate some of the projects currently under development.  These include a dual channel, safety rated door controller to be used for all automated doors systems and a network interface card for Lasermet’s highly popular ICS-6 laser interlock controller, featuring USB, Ethernet and WiFi comms allowing status monitoring and control from computer, tablet or mobile phone.
