Initially, Han’s Laser mainly focused on laser marking machines and welding machines, but, starting from the 21st century, Han’s Laser began its laser cutting business. At that time, CO2 lasers were the mainstream in the market. While working with CO2 machines, Han’s Laser invested heavily in research and development on the fledging technology of fiber laser – which was not well developed at the time with many problems which needed to be improved. With the interaction between Han’s laser and IPG（continuous innovation）, and patient perseverance on the new technology, Han’s Laser became the first Chinese machine builder to successfully manufacture fiber laser on a large scale at very competitive price and performance levels. This enabled Han’s Laser to become the number 1 laser machine builder in a very short time. Currently Han’s Laser sells about 3000 to 4000 laser cutting machines per year around the world, big and small, through its efficient sales network.
Flame Chen, CEO of Han’s Laser Smart Equipment Group, who has more than 20 years’ work experience in Han’s Laser, is very concerned about the future market trends and always takes the lead with new products. Manufacturing tube laser cutting machine is one example. In 2006, Han’s Laser had already began investing and conducting research into the cutting of different tubes and profiles. In 2015, when the market demanded tube cutting machines, Han’s Laser was ready and so was Han’s tube cutting machines, unsurprisingly, generated strong sales. It was at that time, Han’s Laser realized that good software system is needed to manage its machines to deal with different and complicated cutting requirements. They had compared different software companies and finally cooperated with Lantek. Mr. Zhao Jian, Production Manager at Han’s Laser says, “Lantek has rich experience with tube cutting technology and its Flex 3D is an independent and mature module, which can perfectly manage our tube and profile machines.”
Lantek started the development of Flex 3D Tubes before the year of 2000. “Lantek is a technology company. Aligning resources to future products is important for us to keep our leading position. We must keep our position by developing new capabilities which our competitors do not have, or by rendering more functions than other software to help our customers to cope with any situation they might come across.” Says Lantek CEO, Alberto López de Biñaspre. Since cooperating with Han’s Laser, Lantek has developed more than 200 functions, which will benefit this industry into the future. “A large and dedicated development team is the key to deliver a quick response to market requirements. Lantek’s value lies in the fact that it can really solve problems which our customers face every day. Collision avoidance and destroying holes are just two examples. Our software helps the smooth operation of thousands and thousands of machines on daily basis.” Says Francis Perez, Lantek Product Manager.
Lantek has been working with Han’s Laser for a considerable time and its nesting software has delivered significant savings in material usage for Han’s Laser’s customers. In addition, they find the software intuitive and flexible to use. The successful relationship between the two companies is based on mutual trust. Flame Chen, CEO of Han’s Laser adds, “For all the years we have been working with Lantek, they have been truly helpful, supportive and innovative.

In July 2019, a team from Han’s Laser visited Lantek’s headquarters in Vitoria-Gastiez, Spain. They were very impressed by Lantek’s product lines from CAD/CAM to MES and ERP. “Software for the sheet metal industry is a niche market. Lantek has everything for this industry; they even integrate AI, cloud computing and big data technologies into their products. These technologies are the key to Chinese intelligent manufacturing and, companies like Lantek, are indeed what we need as strategic partners to help us to go even further,” Says Mr. Flame Chen, CEO of Han’s Laser Group.
