Highest quality optical beam handling systems and positioners

Lasers love OWIS – for a reason. The wide OWIS Portfolio of optical beam handling components and positioning units are characterized by high precision and reliability.

Optical beam handling systems form the basis for individual assemblies and may be combined perfectly with optical components as well as manual and motorized positioning units. High-precision linear, rotational and swivel movements may be carried out with the OWIS Positioners. Corresponding controllers round off the OWIS Portfolio.
