The Industrial Group of KARL STORZ Endoskope stands for consistent innovation.
On May 08-11, 2012, CONTROL 2012, a trade fair for quality assurance, was held for the 26th time in Stuttgart (Germany); KARL STORZ Endoskope has participated in this trade fair for more than 20 years. Some 25,000 professionals from 88 countries visited the fair in Stuttgart to find out about innovations from companies such as the endoscopy expert KARL STORZ: A special highlight at the CONTROL trade fair was the new, very compact documentation unit TECHNO PACK® T, which generates highly magnified, outstandingly sharp images on its 15" monitor and features highly intuitive design and great functionality.
In addition, KARL STORZ introduced customers to a new 4 mm videoscope developed specifically for industrial use; it features 4 x 140° deflection of its short distal end and can be operated with one hand thanks to the new, ergonomic CLICK4MOVE™ technology. Microscopy applications in the field of quality assurance benefit from the sensational image quality of KARL STORZ Full HD cameras as well. Via an adaptor, the cameras can be connected to any microscope or endoscope and thereby allow the display of images on a large working screen. This solution offers greater flexibility in terms of ergonomics and handling and increases the efficiency of visual inspections.
With more than 65 years of history in medical endoscopy, the family business KARL STORZ has also been active in industrial endoscopy for over 40 years. It consistently and specifically responds to the needs of industrial customers, and KARL STORZ endoscopes and systems have become indispensable in this important market. The company’s future-oriented development is primarily guided by its focus on innovation and quality. The fact that innovation and quality have been company strengths for decades was also highlighted by the presentation of the coveted “Baden-Württemberg Award for Competence in Innovation and Quality 2012” to KARL STORZ Managing Director Dr. h. c. mult. Sybill Storz at the CONTROL trade fair.
With its innovative focus and the very promising market response, KARL STORZ Industrial Group is well positioned for the future.
