Coherent acquired Rofin in 2016 to expand its industrial laser marking, cutting, and welding capabilities. The merging of these two companies and their technologies has led to the creation of a full line of industrial laser machines for a broad spectrum of materials processing needs. 

Founded in 1971 and headquartered in Saxonburg, Pennsylvania, Coherent is a global leader in high-quality materials, networking, and lasers for the industrial, communications, electronics, and instrumentation markets. We now operate in more than 20 countries around the world.

Coherent is focused on delivering innovations that fuel market megatrends while pursuing our mission to make the world safer, healthier, closer, and more efficient through the development of new technologies. 


About Rofin

Rofin-Sinar was founded in 1975 in Hamburg, Germany as SINAR Laser System Verkaufsgesellschaft mbH, and soon became one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-performance industrial laser machines and components.  
Rofin was acquired by Siemens in 1987, then spun off to become its own company again in 1996. Over the years, Rofin acquired other laser manufacturers, including DILAS Diodenlaser, Baasel Lasertech, Z-Laser S.A., Corelase Oy, and Optoskand AB, until its acquisition by Coherent in 2016. 

Acquiring Rofin has enabled Coherent to access Rofin’s extensive expertise in material processing solutions, and expand the range of applications we can service.
