Fiberguide has been supporting the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) worldwide in taking their concepts and ideas to market since 1977 with a comprehensive line of standard and custom high optical transmission multimode, single mode and graded index optical fibers from the UV (180nm) to IR (2.7 microns), and temperature ranges from -269ºC to +700ºC (through the application of various buffer materials). Our staff of engineers, technical sales professionals and experienced production team unites in developing product specific to individual applications. We design and engineer assemblies using not only our own pure silica core/silica clad, silica core/plastic clad fibers, but borosilicate glass fiber, ESKA™ plastic optical fiber, fluoride fiber, chalcogenide fiber, erbium-doped fiber and polarization maintaining fiber as well, exhibiting numerical apertures (N.A.'s) from 0.12 (full acceptance angle 14o) to 0.66 (full acceptance angle 82o), with the widest range of custom and standard endfittings/connectors and outer jackets to tailor a product to technical and economic requisites.

Fiberguide is also active in the design and manufacture of ultra precision high density 2D arrays (patents issued), V-Groove arrays designed for optical switches, WDM/DWDM and arrayed active devices; cables for SERCOS digital interface and VersaLink industrial automation; and reflection/ backscattering probes for measuring specular or diffuse reflection from a surface. Fiberguide is FDA registered as a Contract Manufacturer and Custom Device Manufacturer.
