How to measure it – and how to fix it, if it's too high?

Polytec has been providing light in the darkness for 50 years. With over 400 employees worldwide, the company develops, produces, and distributes optical measurement systems for research and industry. The products enjoy an outstanding reputation in the international professional world. Whether it's in space travel, medicine, nanotechnology, or mechanical engineering – Polytec expertise is always in demand across all industries.

Physicist Heinz G. Lossau recognized the potential of the laser for measuring technology. Back in 1967, shortly after laser light was introduced for commercial use, he founded the company Polytec in the technology region Karlsruhe, Germany.

As a pioneer in commercial laser technology, Polytec was the first company in Germany to offer products and solutions for industrial and research purposes. Non-contact measuring technology acted as the starting point for a host of new developments. Today, Polytec’s focus is on the technology areas of vibrometry, velocimetry, surface metrology, spectroscopy, machine vision and other optical technologies. The development and production of innovative measuring instruments and the distribution of products from well-known manufacturers has always formed the foundation for the company’s continued growth. Measuring services and system rentals round off the comprehensive offer.

Customers procure Polytec products from locations in the United States, England, France, Japan, Singapore and China as well as through a global network of sales partners.
