Mahr builds on ESDI Technology

Mahr builds on ESDI Technology

  With the acquisition of Engineering Synthesis Design Inc. (ESDI), headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, USA; the Mahr Group continues to pursue its market penetration into the Optic industry. Mahr,  “The Application Specialist” over the past 2 years has completed product developments of the MarSurf WM 100, MarSurf LD130/ 260 Aspheric and MarForm MFU 200 Aspheric 3D solutions for measuring contour and roughness parameters on aspheres and freeform optics. Furthermore, a prototype of the Tilted-Wave-Interferometer MarSurf TWI 60 was presented to the market. The MarSurf TWI 60 was one of the three finalists of SPIE’s (International Society for Optics and Photonics) 2015 PRISM Awards, and winner of the German AMA (Association for Sensors and Measurement) 2014 Innovation award.

  With the acquisition on June 8th, 2015, the Mahr Group broadens its technology base by adding the leading-edge surface and wavefront metrology from ESDI. ESDI, innovator for Fizeau-Interferometers, with its Dimetior and Intellium product series, ideally complements the Mahr product portfolio.
  Based on its worldwide active sales and service network, the Mahr Group can offer even more attractive measurement solutions for spheres, aspheres, freeform optics and other optical components.
