Beam Handling & Optical Rail Systems
The OWIS universal optical rail system comprises a family of 2D rails and 3D profile rails and slides. A slide simply clicks onto a rail and compatible stages or holders attach to the slide. Slides, holders & stages can be added or moved as required - all the while maintaining the optical component at the correct beam height without recourse to posts or post holders. There’s no simpler or faster way of managing your beam.
OWIS rail systems are available in four sizes. The System 25, 40, 65 & 90 maintain the beam height at 25, 40, 65 & 90mm above the base surface, respectively. Rails are available in many standard lengths, up to 2m long. Our 3D profile rails work with cube beam steering holders and can be used in one, two or three dimensional set-ups.
The SYS 40 & 65 rails are available with a choice of mounting configurations, either counterbored holes compatible with the standard 25mm optical table grid spacing or with slotted holes which allow positioning of the rail along any axis or for use with non-metric grid spacings. The SYS 25 & SYS 90 rails are available with slotted mounting holes. The SYS 40 & 65 series are also available as 3D profile rails - these are four sided rails that allow you to construct three dimensional setups with a stiffness that even allows for cantelever constructions.
A convenient starter kit is available which contains the most frequently needed SYS 40 mechanical components supplied in a handy storage case. The kit includes a selection of SYS 40 profile rails and sliders as well as optics holders, adjustable mounts, adaptors, screws and tools. A companion starter kit contains a selection of mounted lenses, beam splitters, mirrors, prisms and filters, also supplied in a rugged storage case.
Almost the entire OWIS product range is vacuum compatible as standard, and no other supplier has the variety of beam positioning components. You’ll find the long-term positioning stability is superior to many other brands, and you’ll love the way that you can integrate our motorised products onto our rail systems. All of which means that our rail systems are perfect for use in both laboratory and industrial applications.
OWIS rail systems allow the researcher to create experimental setups quickly and easily. Your investment is future-proofed as additional system components can be purchased as your needs change. All rails are made from a special aluminium alloy with high dimensional stability and strength. The system rails, companion slides and other components (such as optics holders) form a modular beam handling system that can be adapted to suit your changing needs.
