Seeing more in medtech applications

Flexible Imaging Bundles, also known as Leached Fiber Bundles (LFBs) in medtech applications such as endoscopy, offer a small diameter and lightweight optical channel for use in tightest spaces and sensitive environments. They transfer a high-resolution image that's ideal for medical diagnosis and treatment as part of an endoscope system.

Flexible vision for defense

SCHOTT’s portfolio of Flexible Imaging Bundles provide single or multi optical channels to observe locations from a remote position. Serving the situational awareness, either mounted or dismounted, the image guides can be used as pure-eye visioning, as an flexible optical extension, or as a passive back-up of electro-optics.

Industrial and Machine Vision applications

Also known as Wound Fiber Bundles (WFBs), Flexible Imaging Bundles in larger diameters and lengths offer versatile visioning solutions for industrial applications. Their flexible layout enables use in remote locations, or any location where cameras or electronics can't be mounted. They make the difference in research and ordered array detecting, and offer independence from magnetic fields and vacuums.
