Laser Design to offer financing through 3D Leasing Corp

Partnership to help company's customers preserve their capital


(MINNEAPOLIS, MN; January 6, 2009) - Laser Design, the leading supplier of 3D laser scanners for more than 20 years, has partnered with 3D Leasing Corp. to finance customer purchases of their high-speed, high-accuracy Surveyor 3D laser scanning systems. The company stated that 3D Leasing Corp. has significant experience in financing 3D measurement and manufacturing equipment. 3D Leasing Corp. offers attractive rates, a fast approval process, and excellent service.

Many companies use lease financing for capital equipment purchases because it makes the best use of their financial resources. Leasing improves cash flow and working capital. Capital is preserved, so companies can use it for other growth-oriented expenditures, such as increasing inventories and expanding sales. Payments are fixed, therefore financing equipment in times of inflation makes dollars cheaper later in the least term. No down payment, plus tax advantages mean more money to invest in revenue-generating activities in the present. For more information on equipment financing, contact 3D Leasing Corp. at www.3DLeasingCorp.com.

Laser Design has been the leading supplier of ultra-precise, 3D laser scanning systems and services for over 20 years. Used for capturing the 3D shape of objects with complex geometries and free-form surfaces, Laser Design's high accuracy, CMM-based and portable laser scanning systems are ideal for 3D scanning applications involving inspection and reverse engineering of complex shaped plastic and metal parts. The company's patented laser line-probe technology dramatically reduces scanning time by collecting data substantially faster and more accurately than conventional metrology technologies.
