The original MIKROTRON GmbH was founded in 1976 in Eching near Freising, Germany. Initially, the engineers developed electronic circuits and programs for microprocessors. Despite the continuing growing success in industrial image processing, the field of industrial electronics is still an important business area of the company today.

Since 1979, MIKROTRON has also been active in the field of industrial image processing. Always oriented to the needs of the market, components for industrial image processing have been developed since then. In order to be able to offer complete image processing systems from a single source, high-speed cameras and high-speed recording systems for a wide range of applications have also been developed since 2000, rounding off the product portfolio in this area.

Worldwide operation

Today, MIKROTRON is internationally renowned for small and particularly robust High-Speed cameras in the industrial image processing market. The digital High-Speed cameras with outstanding technical performance characteristics, for example in terms of image resolution and light sensitivity, are used in industrial and scientific applications as well as in the field of sports, for advertising shots and by nature filmmakers.

Teamwork enables Innovation

On the one hand, the wide product range is the result of consistent further developments in camera technology by an innovative team of engineers and computer scientists. On the other hand, the various experiences from development, manufacturing, sales, service and support flow into the product development process through very close cooperation. It is important for our team to identify customer needs and understand their applications in order to provide customized solutions with our High-Speed cameras.

Due to innovative development performance, a high standard of manufacturing and strict quality controls, MIKROTRON High-Speed cameras meet the highest demands for quality and reliability.
