Concept Laser reports positive half-yearly results

Rapidly growing acceptance of generative manufacturing in markets and the attractiveness of laser melting systems from Lichtenfels are reflected in the above-average growth figures.

In terms of incoming orders, 45 machines have already been ordered in the first half of 2014 (previous year: 31 machines). This is equivalent to growth of 45 % compared to last year. Sales have increased by an incredible 100 % compared to the previous year, thanks to the growing number of large systems being sold.

Oliver Edelman, Head of Sales & Marketing, describes sales developments as follows: "The aerospace industry is a significant sector for us and is now increasingly relying on generative manufacturing strategies. The brackets we produce for Airbus serve as an example of how lightweight construction elements for aircraft can be produced in the future.

"Additive instead of milling" is now increasingly the slogan among production experts. Of course, the dynamic development of markets such as China and the USA generally contributes to further anchoring this positive development. We are significantly ahead of our performance projections."
