• Offer Profile
  • OWIS GmbH was founded in 1980 and is headquartered in Staufen near Freiburg, in South-Western Germany.

    The company develops, produces, distributes and services optical beam handling as well as highly precise positioning systems – still according to the maxim »Made in Germany«. Information technology, mechanical engineering, biotechnology, medicine, image processing and printing industry are some of our product application areas.
Product Portfolio
  • OPTICAL BEAM HANDLING SYSTEMS

  • he 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. With the available system rails, the profiles and the corresponding riders, beam handling heights of 25 mm (SYS 25), 40 mm (SYS 40), 65 mm (SYS 65) and 105 mm (SYS 90) can be reached.

    • rail/slide system allows rapid changing of components
    • for linear, two- and three-dimensional setups
    • versatile for laser and fibre-optic technology and classical and quantum optics
    • for laboratory experiments and series productions
    • components of the SYS 40 can be combined with system SYS 65

    Within the system, OWIS tried to achieve the highest degree of compatibility among all system components.

    A wide range of mounts and adapters make sure that all optical components can be properly mounted. Additional these systems are compatible to systems from other manufacturers, who followed our standard.

    To meet initial requirements, we offer our mechanical and optical starter kits. These contain the most frequently needed mechanical or optical components in a transport and storage case.

    • OPTICAL COMPONENTS

    • OWIS optical 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.
      In addition to the standardized system heights of 25 mm (SYS 25), 40 mm (SYS 40), 65 mm (SYS 65) and 105 mm (SYS 90), a variety of applications can be realized, due to the location diameters of 9.5 mm / 3/8 " to 152.4 mm/6".

      • 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. Adapter plates allow additional assembling possibilities. Therefore, a multitude of applications is possible, also beyond the standardized system heights of 25 mm (SYS 25), 40 mm (SYS 40), 65 mm (SYS 65) and 105 mm (SYS 90).

        • 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.
          For this reason, multidimensional positioning, adjusting and moving of different loads with variable velocities is possible.
