SIOS Meßtechnik GmbH - the company for development and manufacture of laserinterferometric precision metrological instrumentation in the form of fittable measurement devices or complete measuring equipment for measuring lengths, angles, weights, forces, pressures and vibratory motions
SIOS Meßtechnik GmbH specializes in the development and manufacture of precision metrological instrumentation. It was founded in 1991 by Prof. Jäger, the director of the Institute of Process Measurement and Sensor Technology of the Technical University of Ilmenau and some employees. The basis for the company's lines of innovative, top-quality, and ultraprecision products is formed by both its close collaboration with those Institute on scientific and engineering matters and the company's interactions with other high-technology companies in the Ilmenau Technology Park "Am Vogelherd". There is the SIOS manufacturing facility located, too.
The SIOS Meßtechnik GmbH manufactures laserinterferometric and other types of precision instrumentation for measuring lengths, angles, vibratory motions and derived quantities like weights, forces, and pressures. The systems' work is mostly based on using of miniaturized laserinterferometers. These fiber-coupled lengths measurement devices with the remarkable resolution of 1 nm work very stable and precisely because of using a frequency-stabilized He-Ne laser as light source combined with environment's influence compensation for air pressure and temperature being relevant for lasers' wavelength. The distances of measurement amount to 5 m. Because of light-supplying to the sensor head via optic fibers the probe's environment is not influenced by temperature. The miniatur interferometers equipped with either cube corner retroreflector or plane mirror are used in two-axis and multiaxis systems, too. Furthermore velocity and vibration measurement is offered. Beside of fittable measurement devices, complete measuring equipment is developed and manufactured - according to the customers' requiries and measuring conditions.
