MKS Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKSI), a global provider of enabling technologies that transform our world, has announced Newport Custom & OEM Optical Subsystem Solutions, new services from Newport OCB (Optical Component Business) that integrate Newport’s world-class capabilities in opto-mechanical design and optical component design and manufacturing.
The services provide OEMs of analytical instruments and spectrally-based diagnostic equipment with state-of-the-art optics; a simplified and tightly-managed supply chain, from prototype to production; access to a global assembly network; and support for the entire lifecycle of the products. The integration of precision design, engineering, and manufacturing services allows the delivery of continuous or discrete spectral analysis systems for a variety of OEM instrumentation applications, including semiconductor, life & health sciences, and industrial analysis.
Most optics companies specialize in either opto-mechanical design or in producing a single type of optical component," said Dan Lawrence, General Manager, Newport OCB. "Newport, with over 75 years of experience, excels at design and production of opto-mechanical assemblies as well as a broad range of optical components. Those capabilities provide a strategic advantage to vertically integrate critical optical components while engineering and optimizing the most demanding optical sub-assemblies to deliver system performance for OEMs. Newport's global manufacturing footprint enables ease of integration by Richardson Gratings; high performance mirrors and optical filters; precision optical mounts; and motion control systems leveraging an extensive catalog portfolio in addition to custom engineered capabilities."
Designed to optimize optical system performance, Newport Custom & OEM Subsystem Solutions services include:
- OEM optics: Includes precision diffraction gratings, high performance optical filters (from UV to NIR), precision optical components, replicated mirrors, thin film coating capabilities to optimize system performance, and advanced metrology and testing.
- Optical, opto-mechanical, electrical, and systems design: Collaborative engagement with customers to develop custom designs. Optimization for manufacturability of end-to-end sub-assembly design and system performance.
- Manufacturing, assembly and test: Component fabrication and sourcing; precision assembly and test at our facilities in the US or around the world; controlled clean room assembly (ISO-5/100, ISO-6/1,000); supply chain risk mitigation at the component and assembly level; and US-based ISO registered facilities with ITAR and IP control.
