History

Established in 1984, Lumen Dynamics rapidly took the lead in light-based technologies by delivering cutting edge solutions to a worldwide customer base. Initially, the company focused on offering dentists with state of the art dental curing solutions used for bonding composite dental fillings. In the following 12 years, the company expanded this business by providing industry leading products to several companies, including Dentsply® International and 3M®. Lumen Dynamics sold its dental curing business in 1997, and then used its expertise to develop new technology and become the leader in UV assembly manufacturing for medical devices.

Rather than light curing composites used in dentistry, Lumen Dynamics offered UV curing systems used to cure photo-reactive adhesives that adhere different materials together. In 1998, the company brought the same approach to inventing illumination systems into the fiber optic telecom-component manufacturing market. Within three years, the company was a leader in that market.

Lumen Dynamics’ continued its record of innovation in 2003, with the development of a new system for the delivery of light through advanced fluorescence microscopes used for cellular imaging. Once again, it only took three years for Lumen Dynamics to become the leader in fluorescence illumination systems for microscopes, which it accomplished through its commitment to understanding and solving the complex issues of its customers. In 2008, Lumen Dynamics created innovative new light-based delivery systems for digital printing where inks are instantly dried to create images of high resolution at a greatly reduced cost.

For nearly 30 years, Lumen Dynamics has relentlessly pushed forward, innovating revolutionary technologies to provide value for its customers. Lumen Dynamics offers solutions to some of the most demanding industries, including FDA approved manufacturing, high quality printing, and life science research. The company has continued to lead in a variety of markets. At its heart, the company is bound together by highly talented people who innovate in the fields of light, light delivery solutions, and the interactions between light and photosensitive materials. Lumen Dynamics is determined to advance technology while continuing to enhance its dedication to environmental sustainability.
