Milestones in 3D-Micromac’s History


3D-Micromac AG  was founded in 2002 in Chemnitz by Tino Petsch with a total of six employees. The company has grown since then to more than 170 employees today.

In its strategic alignment 3D-Micromac concentrates particularly on international and high-growth, high-tech markets. We are one of the first companies in the world to focus on the use of ultra-short pulse lasers for the processing of materials. We also specialize in the use of excimer lasers for microprocessing. More than 100 excimer laser systems produced by 3D-Micromac AG are currently in industrial use.

From the founding of our company until today we have constantly been able to achieve important milestones:

  • 2016: Founding of 3D-Micromac Laser Technology Co., Ltd. in China, and construction of a new company headquarters
  • 2015: Solar Industry Award in the category of «PV Tool»
