Excelitas acquires UV system maker Lumen Dynamics

Excelitas Technologies of Waltham, MA, USA, which provides customized optoelectronics to OEMs, has acquired Lumen Dynamics of Ontario, Canada, 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 Excelitas’ CEO David Nislick. “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.” Excelitas reckons that the acquisition strengthens its UV and LED capabilities and broadens its portfolio of offerings to the fluorescence illumination and microscopy markets.

Founded in 1984, Lumen Dynamics offers a comprehensive suite of products under the OmniCure and X-Cite brands. The combined firms will offer an expanded range of customized fiber-optic UV and LED solutions and specialty lighting products for OEMs in electronics/optoelectronics, digital printing, medical device, and life-science applications.

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