QiOVA is a French deep technology company specialized in the fields of laser and photonics.
Founded in 2011, QiOVA has been pioneering the development of programmable laser beam shaping for high power and high energy applications.
QiOVA is headquartered in Saint-Etienne, in the region of Lyon, in a hotbed of French technology. Flagship of French industry in the XIXe century, Saint-Etienne succesfully managed its reconversion to high-technology and industrial design over the last 40 years. First tier universities and engineering schools, some specialized in photonics, are located next door to QiOVA, as well as leading industrial companies like HEF or Nestle.
QiOVA designs and delivers programmable beam shaping OEM systems to scale up competitiveness and profitability of laser material processing. QiOVA marketed the first industrial laser beam shaping platform in 2014, named VULQ1.
VULQ1 is based on the patented multibeam technology, which uniquely combines ultra-high-speed processing capabilities with operational flexibility.
Applied to micromachining, VULQ1 allows to scale up process productivity dramatically with process parallelization. The flexibility offered by the digitally interchangeable laser tool creates opportunities for shorter time-to-market and faster return on investment. Typical applications are found in surface texturation for aeronautics and solar industries, or ultra-high speed micro-holes drilling for pharmaceutical or biomedical devices.
QiOVA’s ambition is to develop a sustainable and mutually profitable business with its customers through continuous innovation and close cooperation.
We are happy to support our customers from the original ideation to the final solution. Thanks to our laser application expertise and application development facility, we are able to translate our customer ideas into clear and actionnable proposals to help them move forward with their project.
