Fiber Optics

fiber optics

Cut to length precision glass fiber optic components are used in a number of fiber optical applications. Accu-Glass manufactures fiber optic ferrules, collimators and various types of spacers for fiber optic component manufacturers.

Fiber Optic Ferrules

Accu-Glass Fiber Optic Ferrules are high precision components for optimal alignment.  Our ferrules reduced scattered light and signal loss using precision drawn borosilicate glass tubing using a proprietary process

Precision Glass Splice Sleeve Strength Members

Glass rods from Accu-Glass are used in fiber optic junctions as splice sleeve strength members in splice sleeves. These are non-conductive and chemically inert stiffeners that can handle a harsh environments without interfering with nearby conductive cables.

Fiber Optic Glass Collimator Sleeves

Our fiber optic collimator sleeves are high precision glass tubes to align other internal optical components. In some applications the fiber has a glass ferrule attached to its end and the ferrule is inserted into the collimator sleeve. A very small lens is sometimes inserted into the end of the fiber optic collimator. Glass Collimator sleeves vary widely in terms of length based on where and how they are to function. These are made of precision glass tubing, cut to your specification.

Glass Spacers & Housings

Accu-Glass employes precision glass tubing as fiber optic alignment devices.  Thermal expansion matches common fiber materials.
