IPG Photonics manufactures high-performance fiber lasers and amplifiers for use in a wide range of markets, such as materials processing, advanced technologies, telecommunications and medical applications.
Founded in 1990, IPG Photonics pioneered the development and commercialization of optical fiber-based lasers, which are a new generation of lasers that combine the advantages of semiconductor diodes with the high amplification and precise beam qualities of specialty optical fibers. Because these lasers deliver superior performance, reliability and usability at a lower total cost of ownership compared with conventional lasers, fiber lasers are displacing traditional lasers in many current applications and enabling new applications for lasers.
The Company's vertically integrated manufacturing provides significant competitive advantages and enhances its ability to meet customer requirements, manage costs and improve performance. IPG Photonics is based in Oxford, Massachusetts with additional manufacturing facilities in Germany, Italy and Russia, and regional sales offices in Detroit, Silicon Valley, China, France, India, Japan, Korea, Singapore and the U.K.
