Laser material processing is an essential technology in modern production. Laser beam steering systems are used to move the laser beam on the workpiece surface. Solutions based on moving masses such as galvanometer- or polygon-scanners are often the limiting factor in terms of process speed and productivity in laser material processing.

At INLEAP Photonics we are overcoming the limitations of mass inertia. With our technology, we provide highly productive, flexible and ultra-fast laser beam steering systems to the industry. With these systems, our customers raise the full potential of laser material processing in terms of throughput, efficiency and cost. Furthermore, we develop customized solutions according to individual customer requirements.

Get ready for a new era of ultra-fast and sustainable laser material processing and leap into the future of laser beam steering with INLEAP Photonics – Laser in motion!


INLEAP Photonics was founded in 2023 by long-time colleagues as a spin-off of the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH). Our management consists of highly qualified experts and unites extensive know-how in the fields of laser technology, process automation, mechanical engineering and business development. Our diverse skills complement each other perfectly and we work together to develop sustainable and innovative laser beam steering systems with focus on productivity, reliability, and safety. As a team, we are proud to provide our customers a new generation of laser manufacturing technology.
