From the first natural fused quartz tubes in 1976 to today’s synthetic fused silica materials, Heraeus Conamic has been an integral part in the production of optical fibers. These silica tubes are used as substrate material for the core deposition, cladding material for e.g. fiber lasers or redrawn into capillaries for e.g. fiber combiners.
Heraeus Conamic has continuously improved the quality and performance of our Fluosil® tubes serving the specialty fiber industry. We use proprietary processes that allow the production of fused silica tubes without the use of forming tools. These processes yield tubes of excellent purity and high geometrical precision.
