Uwe Schallenberg Joins the LASER COMPONENTS Team

New Head of Production for Laser Optics

(PresseBox) (Olching, ) At the start of the new business year the general manager of LASER COMPONENTS, Patrick Paul, welcomes the new head of production of the optical technologies department.

"I am excited that we could win Uwe Schallenberg who is an expert in this field with many years of experience."

Thin-film technology has been his passion for more than 35 years. After receiving his diploma in physics from the University of Jena he specialized in optical thin-films - a focus he has kept until today. "Not to cling to the old but to give new things a chance" is how he describes his formula for success. The science remains the same but the everevolving technology heralds novel products.

Most recently Mr. Schallenberg worked as a consulting engineer. His opinion is in great demand when it comes to feasibility studies for new designs or evaluations of optical and technical requirements. Researching the current state-of-the-art technology is part of the daily job when manufacturing new products. The step from a consultant to head of production was an easy one for him. "It is not every day that you are offered such an opportunity. I wanted to go back to people, having a team around all day" explains Schallenberg. Passing on his knowledge is important to him. He cannot wait to implement all the ideas he has in his head.
