NTS Optel

Optical, laser and opto-mechatronic tooling, systems, and modules

NTS Optel (Nijmegen, the Netherlands) is a solution provider that develops, assembles and tests complex optical, laser and opto-mechatronic tooling, systems, and modules. At this specialised site, we combine over 3 decades of experience, some of the best minds and state-of-the-art facilities. We create customized solutions for high complexity, high mix markets. OEMs in the semicon, life science and analytical industry, partner with us in designing, development to manufacturing and lifecycle management. We do this for one-off projects as well as repeat production at speed and within budget.

Focus Areas

We are excited about unlocking the true value of optics for our customers. Our applications include illumination solutions, imaging solutions, sensing solutions, laser beam delivery as well as integrated solutions. We have developed over 100 custom test & measuring solutions and opto-mechatronic systems in our core markets.  

Taking Ideas to Manufacturability

At NTS Optel, we combine our creativity, curiosity and craftsmanship to go from ideas to product. Starting from concept design, and during the development process, we keep manufacturability in mind. Having all the capabilities in-house, including domain expertise as well as optical labs and assembly infrastructure (both greyroom and cleanrooms ISO 6-7), means faster time-to-market and continuous on-time delivery for our customers. Once the prototype is final and ticks all the requirement boxes, we can move to small or large series production.  

Whether it is an opto-mechatronic system, a module that needs to fit perfectly into your machine, or an optical measurement & testing tool, that you will market yourself or for internal use, we provide fit-for-purpose products. Regardless of whether a customer outsources the manufacturing or does it in-house, we ensure that our delivery timelines are seamlessly aligned with their supply chain.

Adding Value as a Partner

As a partner, we always keep our eye on your success. First and foremost, we focus on our customers’ needs and what is important for them. We use our multi-disciplinary expertise to address that need – whether it is design, development, engineering or manufacturing.  Along with our customers, we work on the idea, add our creative engineering expertise and often create new (optical) solutions. Our proficiencies in optics, electronics, software and mechanics constantly push the boundary of what is possible, allowing applications in ever smaller dimensions. This enables increased usability and lower cost, which we can then pass on to our customers. We strive to be one of the top 3 partners, for custom optical and laser solutions and continue to deliver a seamless customer experience
