Focus on High Tech

Every company in the B.I.G. is an outstanding player in its field: GEFERTEC makes sure that defective German Rail locomotives can be quickly recommissioned; thanks to Lumics, doctors can use lasers to remove diseased tissue; Scansonic facilitates perfect welding seams in automotive chassis; and those are only three examples. We develop every single product in close collaboration with our customers. This approach results in precise solutions and convincing results.

Our Company Portfolio


Leading producer of components for laser medicine

Medical devices with diode lasers from Lumics can relax painful muscles, remove diseased tissue, support industrial plastic welding, and measure gas concentrations or wind speeds. Lumics is one of the few companies in the world with a complete inhouse value chain for laser diode development and manufacture – from wafer processing and chip production to the finished laser module, including control electronics and cooling solutions. This ensures the company’s independence from external suppliers and guarantees consistently high quality.

Giving the robot an eye

In automated production lines, robots move independently over the workpiece, weld sheet metal or glue plastics. The optical seam tracking sensors from Metrolux ensure that the robot arm always follows exactly the right path, even with uneven component edges. This requires high-tech camera systems, image processing and precise regulation and control algorithms.

3D Metal Printing - sustainable, fast, and cost-effective

GEFERTEC offers complete manufacturing systems for the 3D printing of metal using the wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) process. This combines traditional gas metal arc welding with a high level of process expertise for the additive construction of components, a robust machine system, integrative CAM software and process-related quality assurance. The robust process, the high build-up rates, and the simple handling of wire as a feedstack make the process interesting for the production of medium-sized to large components.
