TOOLING FOR THE FIBER OPTIC INDUSTRY

Optical fiber enables voice, data and video communications to meet the needs of various network applications.

We’ve assisted with OEM’s to develop and manufacture critical tooling for the next generation of fiber optics.

GLE manufactures carbide dies used throughout the fiber optic industry.  These dies aid in the development for the creating and forming of fiber optic cable and applications, including the next generation of fiber optic tooling.

Optical fibers are made from the purest optical glass.   A person may think of a glass window as transparent, but as the glass in the widow gets thicker,  more impurities in the glass develop and the more difficult it will be to see through.  One company’s take on the quality of glass was: If you were on top of an ocean that is miles of solid core optical fiber glass, you could see the bottom clearly. The  Making optical fiber consists of three steps:  making a preform glass cylinder, drawing the fibers from the preform and testing the fibers.

The fiber optic cables transmit data through fast pulses of light.  The strands are less than 1/10  the thickness of a human hair and quickly transmit data, almost at the speed of light.
