How it all began...
In 1993, our CEO, Hans-Erich Gubela, founded IMOS Gubela GmbH – a private institute for micro-optics and structure. The goal: to miniaturise reflection structures with the lowest performance loss in the reflection. With a highly motivated group, he built up a successful production team. There was soon a large demand for more optical components for industry, science and research.
Today, we successfully design and produce optical components with our experience. With our own research, development, measuring technology and production. Through our strong team, we are the first contact for large industry customers throughout the world.
With our research partners we implement ZIM projects, BMBF projects and European Research Association projects. Our research partners are, among others, various Fraunhofer Institutes, the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB - the Federal Institute of Physics and Metrology) and various technical universities.
With our research and development, we make the best solution possible for your research project or your application.

Promoting young talents
Project with the PTB
The most modern CAD programs and our own tool construction make it possible to quickly process customer-based optics projects.
ACHIEVEMENTS AND EXPERTISE
Optics are our specialist area
Concept, design and development set decisive directions for our first-class product that completes your system like you would want it to.
• CAD and FEM
So you can appraise your product virtually, we rely on the most modern software, such as CAD and FEM simulation programs.
Prototypes quickly make the geometry wanted by you testable. We manufacture your prototypes from the same material as will be used for your end product.
• Tool construction
We accomplish complex geometries with tools that we develop especially for your product. We also offer economic solutions for small series.
• Series production
Series production is undertaken on the most modern production systems. Our highly qualified employees ensure the quality standards in accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
As your optics partner, we are happy to take on the logistics and deliver your product on time exactly where you need it.
Due to constant checks during production, we ensure the best quality of every individual optical component.
COMPANY POLICY AND CERTIFICATION
Quality and Environment
Quality management system:
The quality advantage for our customers
The responsibility that we have taken on with our quality management system is at the same time a promise to our customers that all processes from development to dispatch of our products are carried out reliably according to fixed quality requirements. This basic idea is consistently followed without exceptions in all areas. “Level A quality” is thus a fixed component of our company policy.
Environmental management system:
Product safety for our customers
The IMOS products are designed in an environmentally friendly way. In the selection of raw materials, production control and with new investments, the benefits and the safety for environmental protection are also always checked by IMOS. The IMOS environmental management system is certified according to DIN EN ISO 14001:2015 by TÜV Rheinland.
Energy management system:
Thanks to our energy management system, we are in a continuous process to reduce the use of water, energy and gas resources.
Successful as a team!
We achieve great things through strong teamwork. Our passion is optics and the success of our customers.
