Scanlab GmbH, an OEM manufacturer of high-quality laser scan systems, has appointed Christian Sonner as head of Research & Development (R&D) and management board member. The highly experienced control expert will further strengthen the company’s market position in digital products and control solutions for the photonics industry.

Christian Sonner (40) is assuming the role of R&D director, thereby continuing on the successful work of Norbert Petschik. Under his leadership, the department and its 70 or so employees will increasingly focus on highly integrated scan solutions. Christian Sonner has extensive expertise in developing system solutions, and in his new role he will drive forward interdisciplinary collaboration.

“I’m very pleased we were able to gain Christian Sonner as our new R&D head and management board member. Over the past few years, I’ve come to know him as a sharp thinker, accomplished technologist and empathetic manager. In view of our customers’ growing requirements for complex systems, he’s the optimal future-oriented appointee,” comments CEO Georg Hofner.

Since 2013, Christian Sonner had already been the company’s software development manager. Under his leadership, the innovative scan control solutions for precSYS and XL SCAN were developed. After earning an applied mathematics degree, he initially specialized in industrial robot controllers, focusing on functionality for redundant kinematics at prior employers such as Kuka.
