In 1973, Dr. Heinrich Schneider Optotechnische Fabrik was acquired by the owner of the parent company from today, the Allit Kunststofftechnik Aktiengesellschaft. At that time, it was decided to further utilize the optical and mechanical core competences of the company to develop and produce high-quality optoelectronic industrial goods. Since then, both competences have been constantly and newly combined in high-quality measuring technology to obtain the highest possible precision.
Dr. Schneider Messtechnik measuring units are being used nowadays throughout the world in reknowned companies, in particular, in the automotive industry as well as by its suppliers, medical industries, the machine and tool construction industry as well as the electrical and plastics industries. Many leading companies in the aircraft industry measure today with Schneider Messtechnik machines, Formule 1 and calibration services belong to our customers as well.
Besides contactless measuring technology for measuring projectors, Dr. Heinrich Schneider combines optical and tactile measuring technologies in the product line SKM (Schneider coordinate measuring units) introduced in 1997. The most up-to-date image processing is the new core competence. Accuracy and fastness are indispensable principles of Dr. Heinrich Schneider Messtechnik in times of increased challenges in measuring rooms and production environments.
The constantly increasing requirements in regard to electronical and mechanical quality lead to the necessity of an immense effort in development. The move into the new building in 2002 makes the company best prepared for its future.
