About us

From diverse culture and far-reaching history to forward-looking state-of-the-art scientific research facilities – Heidelberg has it all. A city with over 800 years of history and tradition is also home to numerous leading researchers and Nobel Prize winners. As a center for scientific research, Heidelberg not only houses prestigious universities and industrial research institutions but is also the home of Heidelberg Instruments Mikrotechnik GmbH.

Heidelberg Instruments was founded in 1984 by five scientists from various institutions in Heidelberg with the aim of building a high-tech company that transfers academic research and developments to industrial projects. In the past 35+ years it has become the core of innovation in the development of high-resolution microlithography pattern generators at Heidelberg Instruments.

Heidelberg Instruments has evolved to become a world leader in the development and production of high-precision photolithography systems, maskless aligners, two-photon-polymerization lithography systems, and nanofabrication tools.
