Our company was founded 1943 by Oskar Uhl, the father of Walter Uhl. During this period, objectives, eyepieces and dovetail z-drives for microscopes were produced. When Walter Uhl has taken over the company from his father, he has created and intruduced a component system containing single tube elements like clamping boxes, beam splitter cubes, filter inserts and raster bore plates.
Most of our products like positioning systems, measurement microscopes, custom systems and even the software are based on this basic idea of modular components.
In 2000 we have taken over the hand driven measuring microscope VMM series from Leica. Now we produce and distribute these instruments under our brand. We are the last german manufacturer who has a complete measurement microscope product range.
The low-load microhardness tester VMHT was also taken over from Leica in the year 2005. Now, further development is done continously by us.
