We are Technologie Manufaktur

Innovation is and remains a process that depends on real people, their individual experience and their skills. Specialized knowledge that is well-founded and the use of state-of-the-art technologies provide the foundations upon which we develop new solutions.
The “Manufaktur Idea” governs everything we do: Craftsmanship results in tailor-made products, not mass produced goods. Products we can stand behind, products about which we have something valuable to say. Technology is our craft – we are Technologie Manufaktur.

What’s special about our work at Technologie Manufaktur?

Technologie Manufaktur combines expertise and personal service with the development and manufacture of optical devices that are precisely tailored to the needs of our customers.

In which industries is Technologie Manufaktur active?

We’re specialized primarily on optical engineering and the manufacture of customized products for professional use. This includes industrial lighting solutions in fields such as sensor technology, medical technology, machine vision and biotechnology, but also solutions for scientific analysis methods, such as fluorescence, reflection and transmission spectroscopy, polarimetry, and refractometry.

What is optical technology?

We need it to measure, visualize or manipulate things – optical technologies are everywhere! The most important factor behind all those tiny or huge sensors, modules, devices and machines is always the controlled use of light. Optical technologies generate light. They shape, direct, filter, project, measure and evaluate light. We profit from this every day in our personal and professional lives – whether it’s the smartphone camera, a PCR test or a laser cutter used in the automotive industry.
