Fotona d d


Fotona’s decades-long experience in the laser industry began 50 years ago in 1964, producing frontline laser devices for defense, optical communications, industrial, dental and medical applications throughout this time.


Fotona has been a leading producer of laser technology solutions for defense and industrial applications since the 1960s. The company offers an innovative portfolio of laser defense products ranging from fire-control systems to laser rangefinder binoculars, as well as a line of high-precision industrial laser welding systems that are well-suited for handling a wide variety of difficult-to-process materials.



Fotona's ability to design and manufacture the most demanding system components in-house has proven to be a major competitive advantage in the laser industry. The majority of the electronics hardware and software assemblies for its laser systems are developed internally, with stringent manufacturing and control processes in place to ensure the highest attainable levels of precision, reliability and safety in all Fotona systems.


Based in the US and EU, with corporate headquarters in San Clemente, California and Ljubljana, Slovenia, Fotona’s business philosophy is to continuously choose perfection to meet the needs of a highly demanding marketplace.


The company has one of the most highly educated workforces in the industry, with an exceptionally high number of PhDs specializing in laser and medical technology. Strong R&D capabilities have always been a key competitive advantage of the company, resulting in many patented solutions, including the OPTOflex® articulated arm, QSP (Quantum Square Pulse) and VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technologies, SMOOTH mode, Vacuum Cell technology, and many more.
