Through extensive experience as a developer, Scientific assistant on various research projects, lecturer at the Munich University of Applied Sciences and professor at the Deggendorf University of Applied Sciences with the structure of the Measuring room at the TechnologieCampus Teisnach, a wide range of experience as well as a scientifically sound basic knowledge of the entire metrological and material-specific requirements in measurement and manufacturing technology optics and in device / machine construction could be acquired. In addition, through various experts in the company and the examination of the application of high-precision measurement technology and mechanics by working for and for a wide variety of companies in the optics industry, we have sound basic knowledge of all relevant phases of development in devices and instrument construction. Many years of activity in the sale of optical measuring and testing devices complete our company profile. Our aim is to reconcile the highest demands on measurement technology and user-friendly usability. With us there are not only standard products, but also the possibility of customization. This enables us to respond individually to your wishes without having to “open a barrel”. We can also take unconventional paths and combine your requirements with our innovative solutions. Our highly qualified team is characterized by inventiveness and ingenuity - we are not afraid of new developments either. Thanks to our great know-how, we can analyze your process technology and optimize it using our specially developed measuring devices. We make sure that your "everyday process" is not interrupted. You can integrate our devices into your process immediately and with little effort. Our motto is "precision to perfection". We never lose sight of your expectations and your satisfaction. You do not buy a product from us, but the process to the solution. Our software is intuitive and menu-driven as well as application and practical. We use innovative, future-oriented application technology with modern devices and a very close connection to "Industry 4.0", i.e. with your communication interfaces for you
