Over the lifespan of our lengthy relationship with Ash Technologies they have never stopped asking themselves, and us, one very important question, “How can we make the lives of those who use our products easier?”

Developing groundbreaking technology products

We have been working with Ash Technologies for over 25 years. From the beginning they were an innovative company who were ‘first to world’ with the first digital solution for low vision consumers. Our partnership delivered consistent market winners in the consumer sector, garnering a number of international design awards along the way.

Pivoting to success

With the advent of the smart phone the consumer low vision sector began to be affected. Ash successfully pivoted into the industrial inspection market, using the Crystal device as the pivot device (originally designed for consumer but hugely successful in industry).

Integrating the familiar
with new innovation

Omni is an industry leading HD digital microscope. With fully integrated and user friendly controls, it is the latest user-focused digital microscope from Ash and Dolmen’s 25-year long collaboration. The key design challenge was to create a high-tech product that felt as easy and intuitive to use as a traditional optical microscope.

Form and function
deliver a world class
user experience

Omni takes visual and ergonomic cues from traditional optical devices and features a single, integrated rotary control dial. All key functions can be easily accessed and adjusted using a single, clear, intuitive circular interface. This feature forms the centrepiece for the product, presenting a familiar design language for the optical market, helping to bring traditional users on the journey to digital magnification.
