LML receives manufacturing excellence award

Laser Micromachining Limited (LML) has received a major accolade from one of the UK’s leading engineering institutions. This recognises the quality of service provided by LML to micro and nanotechnology (MNT) industries.


LML has been awarded the MNT Quality Mark by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as part of the organisation’s internationally-recognised Manufacturing Excellence MX Awards. The award was presented by the former director of the UK’s MNT Network, Professor Hugh Clare, at the company’s premises within the OpTIC Technium facility in North Wales, UK. The MNT Quality Mark recognises the fact that LML’s laser micromachining capabilities have been bench-marked in a wide range of categories against best practice in both the UK and Europe, rated as ‘excellent’ and deserving of the MNT Quality Mark. At the ceremony Prof. Clare stated: “These awards are recognised internationally and are given to companies who have demonstrated excellence in manufacturing. LML was subject to independent scrutiny and, in gaining the MNT Quality Mark, has demonstrated manufacturing excellence in the global supply chain”.

LML provides high quality laser-based manufacturing services to a wide variety of precision and high technology industries and also operates the UK Laser Micromachining Centre (UK-LMC) – the national centre of excellence for laser micromachining within the UK’s MNT Manufacturing Initiative, which is part-supported by the UK Technology Strategy Board and the Welsh Assembly Government.

“We are absolutely delighted to be receiving the MNT Quality Mark,” commented LML General Manager, Dr. Nadeem Rizvi. “The award will provide our industrial customers with further confidence of the competence, capability and quality of service offered by LML.”
