LT Ultra-Precision Technology GmbH

Who we are

Since our foundation in 1995 we have become one of the world's leading companies in the field of ultra-precision technology (UP technology). We have almost 100 employees who ensure that with LT Ultra (LT Ultra-Precision Technology) products, you are always one step ahead of your competitors.

As well as our UP technology (machine engineering) division, via which we supply our ultra-precision machines (UP machines) amongst other things, we also offer contract production (metal optics and tools).

Our machine engineering division offers you the complete range of UP processing – a fact of which we are proud. You can get UP machines for milling, turning, grinding, polishing, lapping and measuring, while we also provide special machines – all under one roof.

In our contract production division you can get optics and tools of the highest UP quality in piece production or also in high or low volume production. This unique synergy allows us to continually make improvements to our UP machinery thanks to the ongoing feedback from our own production department. At the moment we currently have around 30 of our own LT Ultra machines in use.

In addition, you can also get interferometers and UP bearings (linear systems and rotary tables) via our UP Technology division. The range is completed by our Beam Guidance division which can supply you with laser processing heads and a variety of additional components for laser processing.

Our values

We place emphasis on close cooperation with our customers and partners. We endeavor to foster long-term cooperation which is beneficial to all parties. Even after delivery, we are on hand to help and advise you – be it with a service call to your premises or further education courses.

Through our own hard work we have enjoyed steady growth and have continually developed – and are still owner-run today. Independence from banks, investors and shareholders allows us to choose our own path and to evolve in line with our customers' requirements.

Our technological progress and our employees are our greatest asset in allowing us to achieve our goals. While steadily increasing turnover and employee numbers are compatible, they are not what drives us.

Every employee is responsible for what he or she does, and this goes beyond just “pressing buttons”. In our company, every individual is “in love” with engineering in their own way, which is why we don't shy away from new challenges, why we work closely with various research facilities, and why we continually invest in new technologies in order to remain at the top. Alongside our research projects with various partners, we also undertake continuous development work which is strongly connected with every new project. It is not just the founders in their role as drivers of ultra-precision technology and PhD-qualified developers who contribute to this, rather it is the entire academic team of over 30 engineers and technicians. Individual, customer-specific solutions determine the everyday business concept and thus represent LT Ultra's unique selling point – developing technologies for markets which are only in their planning phase. The combination of product and process development is a prerequisite for securing leadership in technology and these are being symbiotically developed.
