Engineering Services

  • Product Development

    We develop and build research equipment, ranging from chambers and resilient soil corers to automated sampling, allocation and measurement devices. We will either build the open hardware of your choice or design a new product. In any case, we have the ability to provide a one stop service, from model design to prototype verification, from rapid model manufacturing to make-to-stock production.
  • Prototyping

    A prototype is the working version of your solution. We build your scientific prototypes according to pre-set specifications, deploying a wide range of materials in-house and having engineers specialised in mechanics, electronics and software at hand. Our expert assistance is freeing researchers to focus on innovation. Fast prototyping can be achieved by fully exploiting 3D-printing technology.
  • Custom-made Spare Parts

    Vienna Scientific Instruments is able to recreate custom-made spare and wear parts for your scientific instrument - including mechanical and electrical parts. To reverse engineer the part we either need a blueprint and detail information on the material or to get hands on a (broken) sample.
  • Field Service Technician

    Vienna Scientific Instruments provides hands-on technical support to the research community in Austria and neighbouring countries through its Field & Technical Services. Field technicians can be booked to plan, install, maintain and repair technical installations at field experimental sites - alone or in cooperation with the available research team / technical employees of the institution.

Research and Development

  • Cross-sectoral collaboration

    Vienna Scientific Instruments is highly interested to participate in cross-sectoral research and training actions, as partner or beneficiary, and at national (Austrian), European and international levels. We have experience in writing and submitting grant proposals with Austrian and European partner organisations and have already started and/or finalised successful Industry-Academia projects within Austria.

Creating solutions - together!

We are an Austrian engineering company believing that research is accelerated if scientific equipment is tailored to very specific needs. We believe that significant increments of functionality are rather user than manufacturer based. Thus, truly innovative and highly functional scientific instruments and tools can be built only by collaborating with expert scientists and technicians - YOU!

Get im contact @  !

We thus develop and manufacture scientific instruments together with and for scientists, providing high quality, cost effective research hardware. We use innovative, on-demand production chains such as 3D printing but are also able to engage in mass production. Our current focus are (custom-made) scientific instruments for a wide range of experimental fields within the natural sciences.

Start finding the technical solution for your very particular scientific task today. We serve customers world-wide.
