Custom Laser Process Development & Automation

Owens Design and Turner Laser Systems

Manufacturers needing custom, automated laser solutions that scale know how difficult it can be to find the right partner.

Laser companies may know lasers but they don’t know how to incorporate them into the manufacturing process at scale. Custom automation equipment manufacturers know how to design and manufacture equipment to scale production but aren’t laser experts.

By partnering with Turner Laser Systems (TLS), conveniently headquartered in our building, Owens Design delivers the best of both worlds: state-of-the-art, automated laser processes that can be scaled to meet your production requirements – helping you bridge the valley of death for new product introductions.
