History

 

In August 2017 infrared optics manufacturer ULO Optics Ltd took over the manufacturing operations and assets of Laser Beam Products. The business is now operating as LBP Optics Ltd. This change will ensure the continuing growth of both businesses and allow us to meet the ever-increasing demand for our products and services.

LBP Optics can now offer customers increased manufacturing capacity, extended metrology capability, additional technical expertise and resources. Quality Assurance - ISO9001:2015 accreditation is underway.

ULO Optics has been successfully designing, manufacturing and supplying CO2 laser optics and mid-IR optics for thermal imaging and sensing since 1982. With a drive to make sophisticated beam delivery equipment more affordable without compromising quality, they also manufacture a range of CO2 and 1um fiber compatible beam delivery systems.

Laser Beam Products was founded in 1990 and is a worldwide supplier of laser mirrors and infrared optics. In 1993 LBP was awarded East of England New Business of the Year, and regularly receives awards and tributes from its customers. The company is particularly well known for metal CO2 laser mirrors and gold coated copper mirrors, but this is a just part of what we do.

Steady growth and investment in our manufacturing has given LBP the ability to provide a wide range of precision mirrors for many diverse applications. Export sales have grown strongly - LBP ships to every developed country in the world as well as the newly emerging regions.

We have developed new laser mirror designs and improved specifications of laser mirrors across the whole spectrum to keep ahead of laser and electro optical technological advances. We supply mirrors for deep UV through to THz use.

Our mirrors aren’t restricted to laser use, LBP manufacture scientific mirrors for chemical sensing, instrumentation, spectroscopy and imaging.

We have adopted lean manufacturing practices, guided by the University of Cambridge, and are a long-term member of the Association of Industrial Laser Users (AILU).

More recently we have been lapping and polishing advanced engineering parts to optical tolerances from materials such as Tungesten Carbide etc.

We look forward to many more years of working with customers old and new.
