LTB Lasertechnik Berlin and PTL Ldt. collaborate on gas supply for LTB’s Lasers and Laser measurement technology

LTB Lasertechnik Berlin GmbH, leading developer and manufacturer of short-pulse lasers and laser-based measurement technology for industrial analysis, and Products of Technology Ltd (ptl), the award-winning Scottish manufacturer of gas generators for laboratory and industrial use, are to collaborate in the development of specialised nitrogen generators for production of laser supply gases from the atmosphere.

In the future, lasers and measurement systems using this new technology will be operated without gas cylinders and thereby sources of danger and error will be eradicated. The lifetime and maintenance cycle of the generators are synchronised with those of the lasers.

Batch production of the generators will begin in September 2002. Production and final testing will be carried out by PTL in Scotland and sales will be carried out via LTB, as an accessory for the laser equipment.

LTB Lasertechnik Berlin GmbH is a leading developer and provider of short-pulse lasers, laser-based measuring systems and measuring instruments for lasers. Further information on the company may be obtained on the Internet at

Products of Technology Ltd (PTL), founded in 1998, started selling gas generators into the laboratory market after years of intensive research and development. The product range contains nitrogen, hydrogen and zero air generators along with a new range of dryers and extractors and is complemented by oil-free compressors, piping and a variety of services to provide customers with a complete gas generating solution.
