German craftsmanship

Traditional manual labour and modern manufacturing technologies

The manufacture of fine mechanical measurement instruments requires precision and solid technical skills. Our years of experience give you the security for the best processing and adjustment.

Virtually all product components are manufactured and assembled in-house. This enables us to implement customer-specific product versions also in small series.

To ensure the reliability of our products, we attach great importance to high-quality materials as well as on the most precise adjustment and testing of the measuring movements.

The careful use of resources and use of environmentally friendly manufacturing methods are part of our self-conception of sustainable production.
