Laser giant Trumpf has opened an Asian production location for disk lasers at Trumpf Japan in Yokohama. Dr. Peter Leibinger, Vice Chairman of the Managing Board, officially inaugurated the new TruDisk production facility in Yokohama at the beginning of June.

The Yokohama location is the company’s third production site for disk lasers after Schramberg, Germany, and Farmington in the USA. The initial plan is for TRUMPF Japan to assemble around 40 lasers a year.

The objective of having the new production facility is to expand the Japanese market for disk laser technology. It will also allow Japanese customers to observe the quality of production processes and products at the Yokohama site.

The production staff has been trained at Trumpf’s development and production location for disk lasers in Schramberg.

At last month’s opening ceremony, the 120 invited guests included customers, key figures from Japanese industry, professors from Japanese universities, and media representatives.

A high-ranking delegate from the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry also attended and thanked the company for investing in Japan after last year’s tsunami and nuclear catastrophe in Fukushima, just 250km from Yokohama.
