How It All Started...

In 1994, physicist Josef Höllbauer founded ALPHA LASER GmbH. The next year, Wolfgang Seifert and Hans J. Penser, also physicists, joined the company as partners. That same year, at the International Dental Show in Cologne, they presented the first welding laser for dental applications. Its great success reinforced the founders’ determination to develop laser welding devices for the dental market and to sell them with the help of partners worldwide. Since those first days, ALPHA LASER has been in intensive dialog with its customers and distribution partners around the world. And this is the company’s great strength – quickly and precisely recognizing and implementing the needs of the market. In the 1990s, the dental lasers were joined by laser devices for the jewelry industry.

In 1998, ALPHA LASER entered what is today its most important market segment – tool and mold manufacture. With the market introduction of the ALW vario 100 closed laser, the company has reached a further milestone in its development. In subsequent years, the company has brought a variety of closed and open laser systems and 4-axis laser work benches to market.

ALPHA LASER reached another milestone in 2003 with its ALM mobile laser, whose maneuverability made it a great success with customers from the very first day.

Since 2008, the mobile ALFlak has ruled the market, and with its 2014 variant ALFlak Max, ALPHA LASER has confirmed its position as the inventor of mobile laser welding systems for automated welding also.

In addition to its core business of laser welding, for years, ALPHA LASER has also developed professional devices and systems for laser cutting and hardening, such as the world’s first mobile laser robot for laser hardening.

In 2013, Hans J. Penser left the company, and since April 1, 2014, executive management has had two new members: Thomas Golinske, head of sales, and Georg Meyndt, head of development.

In 2015, ALPHA LASER celebrated its 20th anniversary and moved into new company headquarters at Junkersstraße 16 in Puchheim, Germany.
