SENSOPTIC was founded in 1998 by Axel Bertholds and Andreas Braunschweiler as a spin-off company of GF Machining Solutions, Losone, following ten years of development and production of optical sensors for wire electro-discharge machines. The Company remained in the same facilities located in the italian speaking Canton of Ticino in Southern Switzerland, and is privately owned and managed by the founders.
Thanks to its extensive know-how in optical sensor technology and micro engineering, SENSOPTIC was originally established as a designer and manufacturer of innovative precision instruments for a wide variety of customized sensor applications. Some years later, recognizing a market demand of measuring systems for quality control of small defects on fine wires and filaments, SENSOPTIC focused its efforts in offering a unique and proprietary range of automatic measuring systems. Boosted up by an increasing demand of high quality wires and filaments from European companies and a deeper understanding of customers manufacturing processes, this activity grew steadily with time to become the core-business of SENSOPTIC.
