Metrology: We only manufacture what we can measure.

We guarantee our clients a uniformly high quality of our products which we ensure with suitable and sophisticated measuring instruments and measuring techniques. For this purpose, we often develop individualized measurement setups to optimally comply with the requirements of our clients. Extensive test reports record the measurement results in graphics, 3D images and numerical data.

Basis for the error-free functionality of optical components and systems is the use of the right optical glass. Therefore, we carefully inspect all materials used for our products.

Our test equipment and measurement technologies:
