lasers love OWIS
As a medium-sized, owner-managed company based in Staufen im Breisgau, Germany, we develop and manufacture high-precision products and solutions for scientific institutions and industrial companies worldwide.
Our strengths lie in laser technology. That is why we have been appreciated in measurement and testing technology, research and science, the semiconductor industry, biotechnology and medical technology, image processing and sensor technology, analytics and diagnostics for decades.
Our wide product portfolio of beam handling systems, optical components as well as manual and motorized positioners offers you the perfect modular system to realize your application or laboratory setup in photonics.
This also applies for vacuum applications. The OWIS Vacuum Series is designed for high vacuum (HV), ultra high vacuum (UHV) and extremely high vacuum (XHV). In XHV with pressure ranges of 10-11 mbar, we have developed a unique competence.
With OWIS Engineering, we support you in application-specific customizing, in the fast and flexible setup of alignment and handling systems, or when it comes to further developing your laboratory setup into a production-ready series product, the OWIS Optics Box.
Lasers love OWIS. Not without reason. Our products and engineering services are characterized by precision, functionality and reliability that you can rely on!
Optical Beam Handling Systems and Positioning Systems
OWIS has a track record of almost 40 years of innovation and providing quality solutions for optical beam handling and positioning systems from the factory to the laboratory and hosptial, We stand ready to serve you now and in the future with products in the following categories:
Optical Beam Handling Systems
The OWIS system installation kits allow the experimenter to provide experimental setups within shortest time. Furthermore, it is guaranteed that, when using the existing system components with a future series production, the same kits can be employed. This is particularly important for the industrial research.
Manual Positioning Systems
OWIS positioning systems are the economic solution for applications, where simple but precise motion sequences have to be realized. Due to the manifold combination possibilities of linear, rotary, angular adjustment and tilt stages, goniometers as well as fine-thread and micrometer screws in the most different specifications, a large application area is covered.
Optomechanical components are used in all research fields of the industrial sectors where light is used for experimental and developing processes. These are not only standard but also customer and application-specific products. The kinematic and gimbal adjustment units with the corresponding inserts are brought to the required beam handling heights, when mounted on slides, pins or directly on optical tables.
Motorized Positioning Systems
Motorized positioning systems are used in research and laboratories as well as in various industrial sectors to automate precise and complex motion sequences. A construction kit with different automation components allows the assembling of complete harmonized systems.
OWIS has a modern production line with precise machines which enable the manufacturing of high quality products. Above all, a motivated R&D team does its best to offer individual solutions to our customers. The company is proud to – not only through standard products but also through special projects – set standards for future technological development in the fields of optical beam handling and positioning systems.
Ultra-high vacuum: the next level
The offer to manufacture products for ultra-high vacuum includes almost the entire OWIS product range, starting from beam handling systems, such as system rails and optic holders, to manual and motorised positioners. To comply with the limits, special XHV motors are used for the motorised versions. The standard products for 10-11 mbar are supplied without end respectively reference switches, but can be equipped with XHV compatible switches if required. As all OWIS products, the 10-11 mbar products are of highest quality and of course “Made in Germany”.
