Technobis mechatronics

Since 1996 specialized in carrying out complete product development projects, going from an idea to a successful turnkey product, prototype or series product. One of the main challenges in product development is the translation of the high level specifications drawn up by specialists to a technical design which results in a correctly functioning product. This requires people who are used to cooperate with specialists and work within consortia to realize the most multidisciplinary instruments.


Technobis fibre technologies

Since 2006 specialized in the development and supply of fibre optic sensing systems and modules for demanding applications. All developments are spectrometry and or interferometry based. Starting with free-space optics, nowadays all new developments are based on integrated photonics.

Technobis Generic Package @ VPRO Tegenlicht (from minute 07:00)

december 15, 2017

Ondanks de aanstelling van een klimaatminister, werd er vooral teleurgesteld gereageerd op de nieuwe klimaatdoelen van de regering. Weinig ambitieus en zeker niet genoeg, vonden critici. Hoe kunnen we de transitie naar duurzame energie wel een flinke versnelling geven? Nederland loopt vooralsnog sterk achter ten opzichte van de rest van Europa. Ruud Koornstra, duurzaam ondernemer en energie-commissaris, denkt dat een snelle overgang naar een duurzaam Nederland haalbaar is. VPRO Tegenlicht reist mee op de missie van een ondernemende activist. Bekijk de video  [Bron:]

Cooperation in Advanced Sensor Solutions

november 27, 2017

Settels Savenije Group and Technobis have agreed upon strategic cooperation ✍️, combining their in-depth know-how on integrated photonics and accurate sensing solutions for applications in extreme environments.

test, evaluate & packaging

Technobis Fibre Technologies started developing interrogators for FBG sensing in 2006. Following a successful development and launch of our Deminsys system, we started developing the most sensitive FBG interrogator in the world for ASML. This forced us to use integrated photonics to achieve stability in the sub-femtometer (10-15 m). Using Multi-Project Wafer (MPW) in several foundries, we developed the chips for ASML and at the same time our own Gator interrogator products.
