The company was founded over 60 years ago, beginning with classical lens design and customized optical solutions. The focus has shifted gradually towards the current three product lines: polarization-maintaining fiber optics, laser lines and line scan cameras.
A special focus is set on the winning combination of high optical and mechanical precision, which is the basis for the high quality, stability and durability of our products. We are committed to providing the highest quality and reliability possible, a goal continuously improved by our quality control system.
Line Scan Cameras
An extensive selection of CCD line scan camera systems is available with a variety of interfaces, including GigE Vision, USB 3.0 and CameraLink.
Compact and ruggedized sensor heads with integrated bright-field illumination are designed for the most demanding of environments, including research in the Arctic and Antarctic.
Fiber Optic Components
Fiber optic modular components designed for scientific and industrial applications.
Top research institutes across the globe use Fiber Port Clusters to investigate everything from quantum optics to atmospheric research. Apochromatically corrected RGBV optics have enhanced sensitivity and stability in fluorescence microscopy and biophotonics.
Laser Modules for Structured Illumination
Laser line, micro focus and pattern generators are particularly useful for 3D measurement tasks, using laser triangulation or laser light-sectioning techniques. All models are supplied with internal electronics and are ready for use.
Laser Diode Collimators
Compact laser diode collimators for custom applications or for laboratory use.
Housings are available for Ø9 mm, Ø5.6 mm and TO-18 laser diodes. Thermo-electric sensor or TE-cooling versions are also available, as well as a large variety of collimating lenses and lens attachment accessories.
Special developments and customized solutions provide not only excitement but also relief from the daily grind.
