Christian Sonner has just been made the research and development head of the company, leading some 70 members in his department.

Leading OEM manufacturer of high-quality laser scan systems based in Germany, Scanlab, has announced the appointment of Christian Sonner as head of Research & Development (R&D). The well-experienced control expert will further strengthen the company’s market position in digital products and control solutions for the photonics industry.

Sonner (40), who has extensive expertise in developing system solutions, will continue the successful work of predecessor Norbert Petschik and will, as new R&D head, drive forward the interdisciplinary collaboration at Scanlab. Together with the members in R&D, the department will increasingly focus on highly integrated scan solutions, the company reported. At Scanlab, Sonner was software development manager since 2013. The company's scan control solutions for Precsys and XL SCAN were developed under his leadership.

“I’m very pleased we were able to gain Christian Sonner as our new R&D head and management board member,” Scanlab CEO Georg Hofner comments. The CEO added that he has, over the years, gotten to know Sonner as a sharp thinker, accomplished technologist and empathetic manager, noting that Sonner is the optimal choice for this role in view of the growing requirements for complex systems of customers.
