son-x GmbH places a lot of value on long term cooperation
with strategic partners from industry and the field of research.

Since mid 2016 son-x is a member at Optence, the network for optical
and photonic industry.

son-x is member of Spectaris, the German Hightech Industry Association
with focus on optics and photonics.


For the technologically-based development of new products and processes, son-x GmbH works closely with the Fraunhofer Institute for Product Technology ( in the field of applied research. The 380 employees of the Fraunhofer Institute for Product Technology focus their work on process technology, machines for production, mechatronics, production quality, technical measuring systems and technology management. Ultra-precision machining and the manufacturing of optics is one of the strategic business areas of the Institute, which has built up extensive knowledge in this area over decades. Consequently, the Fraunhofer Institute for Product Technology is a key partner for son-x GmbH in the development of future products.




Choosing the right diamond tools is crucial for the quality of the subsequent processing result. For ultrasound-assisted ultra-precision machining, special diamond tools are required with a very low weight and a relatively small overall size. The geometry of the diamond blade can be varied exactly as in the machining without ultrasonic support and as such, it provides all freedoms. Based on joint development work and many years of experience, son-x GmbH recommends the tool supplier Contour Fine Tooling ( The diamond tools have been optimized for high performance and can be ordered directly from the respective sales and distribution department.
