    As a privately owned British Company Thinklaser has for over a15 years established a reputation for creating innovative laser based process solution for manufacturing.

    During this time we have brought together a team of people with the technical expertise and specialist skills who have gained a reputation for engineering excellence. Our independence ensures that we can remain at the forefront of laser technology development, continually evaluating new solutions to meet the ever growing demands of British manufacturing.

    Our main area of product development has been in the area of laser marking and engraving. While we have never been one of the low cost volume suppliers our attention to customer detail has seen us do very well in the bespoke market place were off the shelf is not possible.

    In amongst the various marking and engraving projects we have cooperated with a number of high profile manufacturers to introduce laser technology into the many differing production environments.

    TISICS is a UK SME developing and manufacturing silicon carbide fibre and fibre reinforced metal composites. This technology is currently being developed for civil aerospace, defence, space and the energy sector. TISICS was established in 2005 through a management team by-out of the technology from the UK defence research company QinetiQ. TISICS is one of two companies worldwide specialising in this technology, the other is based in America and focuses on defence.

    This highly innovative company has an excellent track record in undertaking and exploiting the results of collaborative research projects, including the Innovate UK funded TiCCRaMM, AVLAM and Integrated Wing projects where the weight saving potential due to the specific properties of titanium composite have been demonstrated.

    For example, in the Innovate UK funded IWATVP programme TSICS has successfully developed hydraulic actuator pistons and main leg brace bars yielding a 30% to 40% weight saving with improved corrosion resistance compared to conventional steel or aluminium parts. Recent developments at TISICS have focused on new applications within the space sector and on the introduction of aluminium alloy reinforcement into its portfolio of programmes.
