An optical highlight. And practical as well.

The microoptics think tank.

Know-how meets high-tech.

A deft touch, attention to detail, more than 50 years of experience – a tradition of always being a step ahead.

Henke Sass Wolf Mikrooptik GmbH is one of the world's leading companies within its field. It offers new ideas, surprising insights and outside-the-box thinking for research and science as well as the technology and industrial sectors. We accomplish this with microoptics that, thanks to their tiny dimensions, top imaging performance and precision, always provide new insights. They are primarily used in the field of medical endoscopy and, thanks to their top quality and precision production, they contribute to getting diagnoses right.

We have more than half a century of experience in the highly complex production of achromats, compact lenses as well as balls and rods. The results speak for themselves:

A new dimension of microoptics with lens miniaturizations down to the 1 mm diameter level. Perfect for use in endoscopes, microscopes as well as in the entire field of optomechanics.

Achieving quality with attention to detail.

  • Industry 4.0: High-tech machinery that is constantly upgraded with the latest technology, e.g. CNC machines as well as professional sputtering units and vacuum evaporation units for refining
  • Continuous optimization of machine and measuring techniques
  • Top-quality, optical system with multiple AR coats
  • Outstanding optical transmission
  • High-refractive lenses for the optimal reproduction of colors – even at high magnification levels
  • Continuous product upgrades as part of projects and partnerships with manufacturers

Achieving success with attention to quality.

  • Each optical component is checked
  • Top surface quality
  • High centering accuracy
  • Smallest production tolerances
  • Temperature-resistant bonding up to 150 °degrees
  • Outstanding anti-reflective properties (anti-reflection coating)
  • Quality tests with an accuracy of one nanometer
