Partner’s Portrait: Laser Analytical Systems & Automation

LSA – Laser Analytical Systems & Automation GmbH looks back on a successful twenty-year history and pursues a clear mission: through customised solutions, comprehensive process knowledge and the use of state-of-the-art laser technology, we make the entire material cycle – from raw material extraction to recycling – more efficient and sustainable. Our many years of experience and in-depth understanding of the industry enable us to develop turnkey solutions for the diverse and individual needs of our customers. As every company has unique requirements, we place great importance on working closely with our customers. Our goal is to provide solutions that meet current needs while being future-proof and scalable.

Our extensive knowledge and experience in laser technology, process automation and system integration are the key to our success. We use state-of-the-art laser technologies to perform precise and reliable analyses, which are crucial at all stages of the material cycle. One of the key technical elements we use is a multi-sensor approach that combines data from different sensors to enable more precise and comprehensive analyses. Different optical technologies, such as laser, infrared and camera systems, are used simultaneously. Each sensor records specific data, e.g. spectral information, geometric properties or thermal profiles. This data is integrated using advanced algorithms that combine, compare and analyse the individual sensor information. This creates a more detailed and accurate picture of the analysed object or process.

This approach significantly improves the detection and classification of materials, quality control and process optimisation. Another advantage of the multi-sensor approach is the increased robustness and reliability of the systems, as redundancies and errors of individual sensors can be compensated for by the others. Overall, this approach leads to greater efficiency and precision in applications such as industrial automation, material processing and recycling.

From raw material extraction to recycling, our technologies help to optimise processes and use resources efficiently. Precise and efficient analyses during raw material extraction help to optimise the mining process and maximise the quality of the raw materials obtained. In the production phase, the focus is on increased efficiency and the associated cost reduction through seamless monitoring of the quality and precision of the manufactured products. Our technologies enable companies to continuously monitor the quality of their products and ensure that they meet the highest standards.

In the area of recycling, our laser technologies support efficient processes by facilitating the separation and reutilisation of materials. Our innovations help to reduce our customers’ ecological footprint and conserve valuable resources. Our solutions are designed to promote sustainability and minimise environmental impact. By implementing our technologies, companies can not only increase their efficiency, but also make an important contribution to environmental protection.

Our vision is to remain at the forefront of technological development through continuous research and development and to drive innovation through passion and expertise. We continually invest in developing our technologies and researching new solutions to meet the ever-changing demands of the market. Our passion for innovation drives us to constantly find new and better solutions that offer our customers real added value.

To summarise, our goal is to increase efficiency and sustainability throughout the entire recycling cycle by using state-of-the-art laser technology and customised solutions. We are committed to supporting our customers in overcoming their challenges and helping them achieve their goals. With our extensive experience, in-depth knowledge and relentless innovation, we are the ideal partner for companies looking to optimise their processes and increase their competitiveness.
