Excelitas Further Expands With Lumen Dynamics Acquisition

This acquisition strengthens Excelitas’ UV and LED capabilities and broadens the portfolio of offerings to the fluorescence illumination and microscopy markets


Excelitas Technologies, which specialises in delivering innovative, customised optoelectronics to OEMs seeking high-performance technology solutions, has acquired Lumen Dynamics.

Lumen Dynamics is a privately-held volume manufacturer of lamp and LED-based UV curing and fluorescence illumination systems.

“Lumen Dynamics’ technology and innovative product portfolio complement Excelitas’ existing suite of specialty lighting products," says David Nislick, Chief Executive Officer, Excelitas Technologies. “With the addition of Lumen Dynamics’ expertise in UV curing, Excelitas is now poised to expand our penetration of the high growth UV curing markets and address an even wider range of demanding medical and industrial applications."

Headquartered in Ontario, Canada and founded in 1984, Lumen Dynamics is focused on advancing UV system technology while continuously improving its contribution towards environmental sustainability.

It offers a comprehensive suite of products under high profile OmniCure and X-Cite brands. The combined companies will deliver an expanded range of customized fibre optic UV and LED solutions and specialty lighting products for OEMs in electronics/optoelectronics, digital printing, medical device, and life science applications.

 Lumen Dynamics marks the fourth acquisition consummated by Excelitas since its formation in late 2010. In October 2013, Excelitas completed the acquisition of Qioptiq, further diversifying the range of optoelectronic products to OEMs and increasing the company’s global footprint. In 2012, Excelitas acquired high-voltage power supplier Kaiser Systems and lamp-manufacturer Carsan Engineering.

Both firms have remained tight lipped about the terms of the deal.

 



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
