Leister Process Technologies has acquired IR Microsystems, a Swiss company that provides diode laser-based gas detection modules, to expand its activities in micro-systems technology.

This acquisition is part of Leister’s long-term growth strategy into the lasers, optics and sensors market, which started with the creation of its business unit Axetris Microsystems and its Novolas laser welding systems activity.

‘It is an ideal extension to our activities in the non-dispersive infrared gas detection market, which we are currently serving with our black body IR source,’ says Thomas Hessler, director of Leister’s Axetris Microsystems Division.
