2014 Polytec GmbH, recognising the value in Lambda Photometrics, assume 100% ownership of the company. Lambda settle all outstanding ownership of Physik Instrumente (PI), who are removed as shareholders.
2013 Lambda release their new web-site making it easy for customers to find what they are looking for and to purchase over the web. With increased demand for electrical and electronic measurements in materials science and industry, Lambda broadens its portfolio to supply a range of test equipment from DC sourcing to complex signal analysis. Advanced “Vision” applications require greater frame rates and increased resolution. Lambda introduces a range of cameras to meet the most demanding of applications with the latest connectivity and software available.
2012 Lambda emphasise skills in the following applications areas:
Test and Measurement
Lasers and Fibre Optics
recognising that customers have interests in at least one of the above applications and understanding how each of these capabilities complement one another.
2011 Adding Raman measurement systems to our Spectroscopy range shows Lambda’s commitment to the process, pharmaceutical, biomedical, chemical, LED lighting and research communities.
Lambda strengthens its electro-optical capability by offering test systems for FLIR, SWIR and visible cameras, laser systems, electronics, and motion control.
2010 Understanding that many customer applications require a detailed understanding of the surface of materials and devices, Lambda introduces the most advanced Desktop Scanning Electron Microscope, SEM, to the UK and Ireland markets.
2009 To increase the Identification and Image processing product range, Lambda offer a comprehensive range of Industrial camera’s and vision sensors.
2008 Physik Instrumente (PI) UK spun out of Lambda as a separate company, to further develop their nano-positioning and piezo stage business.
2007 Increased success in the Automotive and Aerospace markets, leads Lambda to begin sales of remote sensing systems. Using fibre-optic technology, allows customers to replace highly complex and lengthy set-ups, using traditional strain gauges, with a single fibre and test instrument.
2003 Growth at process industry customers, coupled with the need to measure ingredient and compound quality, leads Lambda to release in line spectroscopy products.
2000 Lambda enjoys rapid growth, with the rise of the communications customers technology changes and infrastructure investments.
1998 Success with industrial vision and illumination projects within UK process industry guides Lambda to set up a separate Machine Vision group, focusing on supplying leading vision and illumination solutions for a wide variety of industries.
1993 Polytec-PI GmbH acquire Lambda Photometrics, recognising the companies contribution to group sales, Lambda’s experienced group of scientists and engineers and their importance for future growth in the UK and Irish markets.
1981 Lambda extend their “light” capabilities, by entering the market for the testing of Fibre Optic communication systems, driven by the need for increased bandwidth.
1977 Lambda Photometrics Ltd founded by Bob Carless as one of the first UK & Ireland distributors of lasers, optics and related technologies. Distribution agreements signed with Zygo, Quantel & Stanford Research Systems, most of whom remain with Lambda today. This shows the commitment Lambda has to these organisations applications and products, and the value these companies place in Lambda as an extension to their sales and applications engineering workforce.
