A Small-Scale Optical System That Produces Big Results.

The Odyssey Series is a perfect solution for those who need small-scale production with the high quality results of a large, sophisticated system. Whether it’s pilot production or R&D, the Odyssey’s versatile design supports many types of deposition methods to produce highly efficient, uniform thin film coatings for even the most complex applications.


  • Typical coating uniformity is less than 2-3%  (less than .5% achievable in some configurations) 
  • System for small-scale production with high quality results of larger systems
  • Two sizes to meet a variety of R&D and pilot production requirements
  • Supports multiple deposition methods


Offered in two compact sizes-

  • Odyssey450-  450mmw x 450mm d x 600mm H
  • Odyssey600 - 600mm W x 600mm D x 700mm H
