At Fiber-Repair.com we have been designing, working with and repairing medical fiber optic devices for over 25 years. Most of these are laser delivery fiber cables used with high power, high energy lasers. With our experience and know how we can usually save the customer a substantial amount of money. Sometimes new replacement cables are available from the OEM laser manufacturer for a premium cost and other times, the manufacturer no longer supports the laser. Many of our customers are field service engineers that repair and maintain the laser they come across damaged fibers and can offer their customer a replacement fiber for less cost.
What we do is repair the damage that the laser does to the fiber (usually input end) by rebuilding, replacing connector, polishing and inspecting surface using high power microscopes. We can't always fix everything, but we will evaluate them for free and let you know the costs. For example, we typically charge 25% to 50% of the cost of new fiber assembly with a guarantee that the fiber cable works as new when received. We are able to do this because of the skills and experience of our technicians. We also do prototype work involving fibers, glass and plastic. Some of our capabilities include welded ferrules, tapering of fiber tips, angle polishing and more. We can often make small quantities of specialized assemblies that universities and investigators can fit into their budgets. We are familiar with many different types of fiber and connectors. Can we help you?
