We manufacture circular and rectangular glass rods in practically all dimensions between 0,07 and 40 mm.
We cut the rods to length, starting from 1 mm, as well as extra lengths up to 2000 mm. The rod ends can be processed for specific applications.
The following end types are possible:
Apart from standard circular rods, and with certain types of glass, we can also supply the following special profiles:
Additional processing steps, matched to your individual specifications, are possible.
Simply contact us.
Apart from circular shapes, we are also able to manufacture rectangular and square profiles, which can be drawn to thin fibers or rods. In this way, it is possible e.g. to produce very fine bundles of parallel fibers.
Blank surfaces, sharp edges and a high geometrical shape constancy characterize these glass rod. The polished surface range reach the peak, also the pyramid cut has a blank surface.
The octagonal rod out of borosilicate glass shows the variety of possibilities in the production of profiled rods. They are applicable for the lighting- and information technology, serve for the light-mix, as diffusors and likewise as beam transducers. Dimensions with side distances as from 0,5 - 5,0 mm are possible to produce.
Whether as electrical or thermal isolator, fibre optics or distance bolts, contact pin or bearing shaft: Our small glass-rods are found in a large number of applications.
For the reduction of a illuminated cross section of a UV LED, you can use so called tapper, which reduce the light cone to a small cross section with a high intensity of leakage. By the high transmittance of quartz glass in the UV area, these rods are suited for the local illumination of smallest glue dots.
