Products and engineering services you can rely on

This is what OWIS stands for. Our wide product portfolio of beam handling systems, optomechanical components as well as manual and motorized positioners offers you the perfect modular system to realize your application or laboratory setup in photonics.

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 optics box.

Thanks to our know-how and experience especially in the vacuum area, we are able to design our products for applications in high vacuum (HV), ultra high vacuum (UHV) and extremely high vacuum (XHV).

For cleanroom applications, we offer maximum flexibility and a high degree of individuality. This applies both to the adaptation or extension of OWIS standard components and to the development of new and individual OEM solutions.
