To control and shape the light across all spectra, from UV to visual to infrared is key within precision optics industry. Thus our coating equipment is globally renowned for its being able to fulfill every possible specification - even for most challenging spectral shapes of filter coatings. This is due to the outstanding experience of our engineers in terms of process technology, component design and machine setup. All of our expertise is perfectly matched to meet today’s and tomorrow’s demands on benchmark-setting thin-film coating equipment ... this is Bühler Leybold Optics’ commitment to the customer.
For over 50 years, Bühler Leybold Optics has been developing and producing vacuum coating systems for optical applications. Not only do we produce the coating equipment, but we also develop our own components, which have been optimized to achieve the best possible performance. Besides hardware development, Bühler Leybold Optics also focuses on the coating process. In order to provide the best customer solutions we utilize our experience in the development of coating processes and adapt our components to the requirements of the process technology. The result is a wide range of coating systems like the SYRUSpro series of evaporation coating systems for high-end applications, the HELIOS series for sputtering applications with maximum precision in optical coating and the LEYBOLD OPTICS ACE series for robust volume production, tailored specifically to the Asian market.
In the beginning of 2012, Leybold Optics GmbH became a subsidiary of the Bühler Group based in Switzerland: Business Unit Leybold Optics, legally rebranded to Bühler Alzenau GmbH in 2015, operates under the Advanced Material Division within the Bühler Group.
