Leached Image Bundles/Guides

Leached image guides consisting of flexible and coherent fiber optic bundles are used for transmitting optical images from one end to the other, which are suitable for endoscopes in narrow and elongated spaces.

Fiber optic components consisting of single fiber diameter 6 - 10 microns in bundles of thousands to 17 thousands, all precisely aligned together at both ends. This structure enables transmission of an image to the other end of the bundle. Our image bundles are used for medical and industrial use in the latest products.
