Zünd Präzisionsoptik AG, founded in 1968, is one of the the world's leading manufacturers of optical components in the micrometer range and offers high-quality glass prisms, plane optics and kitting solutions that are primarily used in medical technology (endoscopy) but also in industrial applications, metrology, defense technology, aerospace and telecommunications. The continuing trend towards minimally invasive surgery by robotics technology will especially open up further potential for the company.
Optivac AG is a leading specialist for coating optical components such as lenses and prisms. Various coatings (e.g. anti-reflective, filter, mirror and beam splitter coatings) made of silver, aluminum, gold or palladium are applied using thermal evaporation (PVD technology) or ion plating (IAD technology).
