The Company




Services of our company

The corporate division Services

Mainly initialized through our internal activities, we can offer various services (linked to our core activities) beside On-Demand Manufacturing of optical components.

Our focus in the field of services is optical design (lens design and mechanical construction) of single components or optical systems (especially endoscopy systems).

We also offer services in the area of quality assurance, storage and coating. As a result you are able to outsource activities, which are cost-intensive (especially quality assurance, because of the expensive testing facilities and storage). Our intension is a deep partnership at eye level between our customers and our company. You only need one contact to administrate issues in the fields of optical design and manufacturing.

We offer our customers in Europe, America, South Africa and Australia services of the highest quality, reliability and flexibility.
