Schäfter+Kirchhoff was first established about 50 years ago as an optical engineering office specializing in the optical design of high-quality projection and telescope optics. With the establishment of production and development capabilities, the company has built up an enviable reputation in the application of laser metrology and opto-electronic sensor systems for scientific research and industrial measurement.
Currently, Schäfter+Kirchhoff has three major product development lines, involving line scan camera systems, laser line generators and fiber optic components. These complementary areas of expertise allow us to offer a specialist and custom-made development service, according to your needs. Please check the Products section of this website for further information.
With all of our products, we strive for the highest quality and reliability. Our products undergo continuous cycles of improvement and our production capabilities are constantly updated and enhanced. Our latest addition was the inauguration of modern clean-room facilities for the manufacture of sensitive lasers and fiber optic products in 2011.
Since the beginning of this year, the quality management system is certified according to ISO 9001. [→ certificate]
