CLEO to light up San Jose

CLEO - the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (CLEO) 2013 exposition – is set to open at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California.

Among the exhibitors will be Vytran, a supplier of optical fibre-splicing and processing products, which will emphasize its tools and techniques for creating optical fibre splices and fused-fibre components critical for fibre lasers and other applications.

'At CLEO, Vytran will highlight fibre-processing solutions for creating high-strength, low-loss splices, high-performance combiners, tapers, end caps, and other fused components, which are essential building blocks for high-power fibre lasers,' said Jean-Michel Pelaprat, Vytran president and CEO. 'We will also highlight solutions for producing fibre terminations, fibre probes and many other fibre components and assemblies for medical devices and sensing applications.'

Pelaprat added: 'We invite attendees to visit our booth and get an idea of what our unique tools can do to enhance fibre-based component development through volume production. We encourage attendees to discuss their individual fibre processing needs with our on-site specialists.'

Vytran's product portfolio spans a range of discrete process tools and all-in-one workstations for optical fibre stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, tapering, recoating and proof-testing. The equipment is used in fibre laser, medical, aerospace and defense, scientific, sensing and telecom applications.

At its CLEO booth, Vytran will show a selection of its high-performance products. This includes Vytran's newest splicer, the LFS-4100, which can be used on fibers as large as 1.25 mm in diameter. The LFS-4100 combines large-diameter fibre splicing capabilities with a high degree of user process-control and simple operation, making it ideal for applications such as fibre laser manufacturing and producing fibre-based medical devices.
