About Northland Laser

Northland has installed roughly 100 Mitsubishi lasers over the past decade or so, the majority including automation.

Northland works with Mitsubishi’s own excellent factory laser service group, to complement their efforts in supporting customers in Wisconsin and the U.P.

Personnel work out of their homes/cars, as we do not have a central office or showroom. But we are pleased to arrange a showing of equipment at the manufacturer’s showroom or a customer’s facility, and will cover whatever travel expenses might be incurred to make it happen.

Support of Mitsubishi laser automation and press brakes, AKS plasma and waterjet, and Virtek inspection equipment is primarily handled by the respective manufacturer’s service groups. However, we are involved on a local basis by coordinating the service response, and making sure issues have been addressed.

A fair percentage of the annual laser support work performed by Northland is on a complimentary basis. For example, we do on-site applications and maintenance for lasers for the first year following installation at no charge. Our primary goal for offering laser service is to foster and support new laser sales.
