LMI - short historical summary

Laser Machining Inc. LMI AB is a Swedish company with a US parent company, Preco Inc., whose head office and main plant is based in Wisconsin and Kansas, United States.

2018 - LMI resaddles in a new purpose built facility in Hjärpholn, Nås och becomes an exclusive distributor for Bodor cutting machines.

2004 LMI AB became agents for Electrox marking systems in Scandinavia.
LMI's experience in industrial laser application over the years led to an increasing demand from customers for consumables and spare parts. As a result the number of items in our store has continually expanded to meet the demand.

2002  the US company Laser Machining Inc. of Preco Inc. was acquired with a name change as a result. The Swedish subsidiary Laser Machining Inc. LMI AB retained its original name.

From its inception, LMI AB has been responsible as the Swedish agency for the world's leading optics manufacturers of CO2 lasers, II-VI (two-six). Thus, we have been able to support the aftermarket with original mounted optics, as II-VI optics is almost exclusively the manufacturer's choice in the production of CO2 laser systems.

LMI has its origin in servicing industrial lasers. Industrial applications of lasers is an area of ​​technology that is relatively young, with its own special properties. As in many other areas of knowledge there were benefits to be gained by linking parts of the Swedish branch knowledge, which at the time was spread on individual qualified technicians who were active in various organizations, and merging them into a single specialized organization, LMI AB. The collective knowledge creates synergies which benefits customers qualitatively as well as temporally and thus economically.

1997 LMI AB was born as a subsidiary of Laser Machining Inc. in the United States.
