ULO Optics continues to design innovative new products for both standard and custom solutions. Products such as our range of pre-objective 2-axis galvo-scanner lenses have brought new levels of performance to the demanding scanner systems market.

Our optical and beam delivery engineers continue to be involved in a range of exciting R&D projects, both internally and in partnership with customers or academic institutions, which help to move the industry forward.


ULO Optics was founded as V&S Scientific by David Greening in 1982. In 2000 it was sold to Umicore and operated as Umicore Laser Optics.  ULO Optics in its current structure is the result of a management buyout in 2006. Since its inception our manufacturing facility has remained in Hertfordshire, north of London, UK, where a core team of experienced engineers and technicians design, manufacture, and test ULO Optics’ products.

ULO Optics has three decades of experience in designing and fabricating beam delivery solutions. Our engineers have designed optics that today are used as standards in the industry and have supported OEM customers in designing custom optics for CO2 and thermal imaging applications. CO2 scanning lenses developed by ULO Optics are still the widely used standard throughout the industry.


ULO Optics is an ISO certified company and quality is at the heart of everything we do.  With a host of industrial affiliations you can rely on ULO to deliver.
