Silica Fiber Cables for Laser Beam Delivery

Main features:

  • Special laser fiber structures
  • High power connectors HP-SMA and D80
  • Flexible and robust for high power & bright laser beams

FlexiRay® Fiber Optic Laser cables are the best for laser power delivery with high brightness and beam quality. Robust design of FlexiRay® laser cables secures long term use for industrial and medical applications.

Our specialty is to provide high temperature assemblies (up to 600°C) for high power and/or vacuum applications by using FlexiRay® Metal-Coated Silica Fibers. Bundles of metal-coated   fibers are able to combine power from many laser modules to reach output in multi kW power range.

Manufacturing technologies of art photonics assure precise fiber position inside the connector ferrule and a perfect surface quality of the fiber end. Our quality control procedures and special equipment such as digital fiber microscope, infrared vision camera, power meter, beam profiler and 100W diode laser are used to test each cable before shipment to the customer.
