"Entirely new possibilities"

Since Pulsar Photonics has become part of the Schunk Group, the laser micromachining specialist has been able to fully develop its potential - also thanks to joint projects with other Schunk companies. "Schunk's financial strength and the technology company's existing networks around the world open up completely new opportunities for us to further develop our cutting-edge technologies and market them globally," Dr. Jens Holtkamp, one of the three founding managing directors, said happily last June. At that time, the Schunk Group acquired a majority stake in Pulsar Photonics, the Aachen-based full-service provider for laser micromachining with short-pulse and ultrashort-pulse lasers.

This function did not exist before and was created two years ago. Schunk has a very broad technological base; you could also call it a conglomerate. My task is just as broad and deals, among other things, with what incentives and structures the holding company can set up to motivate innovations and how networks can be established so that the developers in the individual Business Units come into closer contact with each other. They often work on related topics, but sometimes in parallel and not together. In the best case, however, this exchange leads to completely new ideas and application possibilities.
