Customized optoelectronical modules and subsystems

With our special expertise in optics, we would like to be your OEM partner when it comes to development and production of optical, opto-electronical, and opto-mechanical assemblies and systems. In particular, we have the expertise and experience in the development, transition to series production, and series production of assemblies and modules with optical sensors. 

Our development department features a modern and well-equipped optics laboratory to implement complex optical systems from breadboard up to prototype.  We use modern measurement equipment for characterization of laser beams and laser sources.

Employing Zemax Optic Studio, our optics specialists design lenses and optical beam paths for imaging and illuminating systems. Our areas of expertise are the design of single-lens bestform components, the design of achromatic lenses, and the calculation of aspheres and multi-lens systems including aberration correction:

  • Measurement of spacing and distances (DMM) 
  • Laser diode modules for specific applications
  • Spectral modules and color sensor modules for process monitoring and quality inspection
  • Analysis of LED light sources  
Depending on your technical requirements, target cost, and quantities, we design, calculate and develop optical systems and integrate them into complete assemblies and devices including the required mechanical and electronical systems.

About us

Company portrait

ASKION GmbH was founded in 2005 by MBO from AGFA-Gevaert and since then has been developed to a high-performance OEM partner in development and production of complex fine mechanical-optical and opto-electronical assemblies.

Our OEM range of services reaches from the idea of the assembly to serial production, including technical device approval. Thereby we are focused on Bioanalytics, Medical Devices as well as Optoelectronics and optical sensorics.

With the development of our business unit cryotechnology in 2009 we offer with our ASKION C-line® system a modular and fully automatable system solution for cryo-/biobanks for control rate freezing and storage of biological samples at -130°C.
