FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RENTON, Wash., April 20, 2017 — Lightel® today announced the CW-7000 Power Combiner Workstation.
High power fiber optic systems are constantly evolving and so are their internal optical components. The Lightel CW-7000 series workstation is a very useful tool to aid in the development and manufacturing of fiber bundle tapering and fiber laser pump combiner manufacturing. Ideal for production or R&D, the CW-7000 is customized for either End-Pump Combiner or Side-Pump Combiner fabrication.
The CW-7000 series combiner workstation was designed based on Lightel’s decades of practice in fiber fusion technology and hands-on experience in manufacturing fiber optic pump combiners. With our specially simplified fiber loading and holding fixtures, there is no need to use or taper any type of glass tubes or capillaries. The fabrication process is simple and easy to learn. Also, the fiber holder/fixtures are virtually maintenance-free and extremely easy to exchange for different fiber sizes and fiber counts.
Incorporated in 1999, Lightel Technologies was founded to bring advanced optical components, and equipment to the optical communications, aerospace, and sensor industries. Lightel maintains its headquarters in Renton, Washington, with additional manufacturing facilities for high volume, cost sensitive production offshore.
