Hobarts complete another installation in Europe for Spanish Company Operon!

Operon Spain

Hobarts were delighted to be contacted by Spanish company Operon S.A., a reference company contributing quality and innovative solutions to the “in vitro” diagnostics field, aiming to improve the quality of life in the community.

They want to be a leading company in technology and “in vitro” diagnostic products, with a solid reputation and a diversified offer with presence in all continents relying on our high quality products and services:

• Immunochromatography Tests.
• Molecular Biology Tests.
• Raw Materials: Monoclonal Antibodies and Recombinant Antigens.
• Customized services: contract-manufacturing.

Operon were looking for a laser that would give them high tolerance results. After careful consideration it was decided the PLS4.75  with HPDFO twinned with 75 Watts of power was the perfect laser to complete their very specific applications.


High Power Density Focusing Optics (HPDFO optics) offers customers the ability to drastically improve resolution in laser marking, laser engraving and laser cutting with a CO2 laser system. This is accomplished through ULS patented HPDFOT that focuses the laser’s energy into a much smaller area than is possible with standard lenses (spot size approximately 0.0254mm, compared to a standard 2.0″ lens which has a spot size of 0.127mm). This has applicability across many industries and gives several benefits to the customer:

• Dramatically Increased Resolution
• Higher Power Density
• Configuration Flexibility
• Reduced Materials Cost

The installation in Spain was a great success and Operon were extremely happy with their new laser machine. As was our engineer who greatly enjoyed his trip to sunny Spain!

We wish Operon well with their new laser and hope to continue a good working relationship going forward.
