We are experts in applications on plastic materials, such as electronic components, promotional products and household appliances.
Every new customer becomes a new partner. We share goals and transform product requirements into functional paths for their implementation. Increased productivity and production process optimization are just a few examples of the requirements we have met over time.
1990 - A brilliant idea
Lasit was established in a village of the Sorrento peninsula in 1990. It is an idea of Marco Ievoli and Candida Colonna, who developed a new technology for that time: laser marking for cylindrical components.
1991 - A European record
In 1991, LASIT launched the 3-axis laser marking head, immediately after the American Company, General Scanning. In 1993, LASIT designed and manufactured its first lamp laser for Hoffmann S.r.l. followed shortly afterwards by Beretta.
1995 - The production challenge
In 1995, LASIT won its first important challenge for ISCAR. We realized an insert-marking system that will open up to a long-lasting collaboration.
2003 – The first Nd:Yag laser
LASIT designed and manufactured an air-cooled Nd:Yag laser, an innovative technology for the early ‘2000s.
2006 - The first fibre laser
In the year of industrial fibre laser, LASIT stopped producing the source in-house. We started designing industrial and customized automation systems, becoming a long-standing partner of ISCAR, BSH and BERETTA.
2007 - Continuous research
People in LASIT have always focused on research and know-how. We cooperate with research institutions including the ILT institute based in Aachen. With them, we created a real time laser beam control system.
2013 - The family grows bigger
In 2013 Marco and Candida’s children – Giò and Ginevra – joined the company. They helped the sales and management department boost, increasing production and the number of partners. The company moved from the Sorrento peninsula to a larger plant in the industrial area of Torre Annunziata.
2014 - Industrial automation
One year later, Rosario Sessa, Marco Ievoli, Pietro Apicella and Carmine Nardone designed the first laser system that worked with an anthropomorphic robot.
2015 - Internationalisation
The company has become a benchmark for European and international companies. Lasit opened new headquarters in Milan and Augusta, USA, with LASIT USA. It created its WebTV, a new technology to reduce distance with its partners. Now, you can watch what is happening at the Lasit plant in real-time.
2019 – Russia’s headquarters
LASIT has chosen St. Petersburg, Russia, to open its first international headquarters. The country’s ever-expanding market and our trust in our local partner have led us to open a new sales and technical support office there. This way, we can always provide our clients with an excellent service.
2020 - Always one step ahead
Lasit is always working to create a positive atmosphere and boost ambition. Today, people work in a 12.000 sq. M plant . It includes a relaxation area, a gym, a library, and an arcade to promote team building and make employees’ breaks more fun.
2021 – Poland’s headquarters
The headquarters in Tychy, Poland, is LASIT’s major goal achieved in such a particular period. The increasing number of clients in this country required greater support. Thanks to our sales and support team, we can aim higher as an ideal partner in the laser marking and automation industries.
