Focus on safety fiber optics and special fiber assemblies
Bonn/Livani, 24 April 2019 – CeramOptec, one of the world’s leading developers and manufacturers of multimode optical fibers made of quartz glass, will be presenting high-performance fiber optics for industrial and medical laser applications at this year’s Laser World of Photonics (June 24 – 27, 2019 in Munich, Hall B2, Booth 308). The biolitec subsidiary’s booth will put a focus on the new safety fibers – special configurations of CeramOptec glass fibers that allow the safety-optimized operation of fiber-coupled high-power lasers by means of copper wires included in the fiber jacket. The copper wires, which are integrated into the electric circuit of the laser system, act as circuit breakers in the event of a fracture or decoupling of the fiber and thus protect against escaping laser radiation.
In addition to this innovative safety feature, CeramOptec will show the entire range of its tried and tested industrial and medical fiber developments, from fiber-optic all-rounders such as the Optran© UV/WF fibers to special fibers such as Optran© UVNSS for UV transmission or Optran© MIR for CO2 lasers. Of course, the Optran© NCC fibers will also be featured, whose polygonal core geometry homogenizes the energy distribution of laser beams and thus supports the generation of top hat beam profiles.
A particular highlight of the booth will be a special high-performance magnifier with the help of which interested visitors to the booth can inspect in detail the front surfaces of all the CeramOptec all-round and special fibers presented at the booth. The fiber optics specialist will provide dedicated samples of all relevant fiber types for this specific purpose. A wide range of information materials will also be available at the booth, including the new comprehensive CeramOptec catalog.
