Hawklaser comes from a split made from k40.se (formerly k40laser.se) which is one of the biggest DIY, FAQ and article website for the Chinese K40 laser cutter machines.
The e-store opened 2016 and was moved to Hawklaser late 2019 to make it stand alone company and let K40.se be just a article and DIY/FAQ website.
In early 2020 we took on more investments to widen our product range, making more custom product in-house and expand to more types of home/hobbyist laser machines.
Within late summer 2020 our plan is to move up to a public stock company and slim down the products offered to focus on what we do best.
Our idea is to provide controlled and tested products. Many of the products we offer can be found on other websites, the difference is that we test each and every one of them before making them available for sale.
We are testing all optics in a spectrum analyzer and discard everything that doesn’t meet our demands – with this approach we only offer the best of the best to our customers.
The name Hawklaser comes from the founders name – Håkan Persson is the founder who started K40laser.se a long time ago and trying to explain how to pronounce the name is easiest explained with “Hawk can” – and that´s how the Hawklaser name was created, easy and simple.
Our first product
The first product we sold was actually lenses. It started with 20pcs in stock and escalated quickly to orders of 2-500 from the factory.
We carry one of the best optics on the market today. Most sellers of parts has never tested their mirrors or lenses, we did and we chose the best of the best and we tested over 40 factories in China before choosing the best one.
From hobby to work
The first months in 2016 the e-store was just a hobby, sending out optics to buyers in Europe. This escalated quickly and after six months we hit our first 1.000 customers.
Today we are as other companies hit by the Corona pandemic but on a regular day we are three people working with Hawklaser.
