GSI Lumonics Inc., a supplier of precision motion control components, lasers and laser-based manufacturing systems, has entered into a definitive agreement for the acquisition of the assets of Spectron Laser Systems, a subsidiary of Lumenis Ltd based in the U.K.

This acquisition adds diode-pumped laser solid state (DPSS) technology and products to GSI Lumonics' offerings, as well as product lines in both lamp pumped (LPSS) and CO2-based technologies. Spectron's lasers are primarily used in material processing applications such as marking, cutting plastic and diamonds, silicon machining and micro-welding, which are expected to complement GSI Lumonics' product lines by expanding applications in the 7W to 100W range.

The integration of Spectron into GSI Lumonics' Laser Group is scheduled for completion by the end of August 2003.
