SCHOTT presents advanced laser delivery solutions for medical applications at COMPAMED

At this year’s COMPAMED (12th – 15th November 2018), SCHOTT will highlight its broad range of capabilities for use of laser delivery technology in medical applications in hall 8b booth H08. High quality glass fibers, rods, diffusers and connectors complemented with engineering services help manufacturers of medical devices to deliver laser beams exactly to the point or area where they are needed.
Laser technology is employed in the medical field, for example in the area of surgery and dermatology when treating pigmentation marks or removing tattoos. However, the challenge remains in delivering accurate laser beams over comparably long or curved distances. Advanced laser delivery systems in particular rely on high-quality light guides.

With the help of specialty glass components, the solutions from SCHOTT are able to emit the laser light exactly in the required intensity and uniformity – either laterally along distinct parts of a flexible fiber, on a specific point or radially at the end of a fiber, or through an end emitting optical fiber rod. “This opens up new possibilities for the medical device industry when it comes to design and product performance”, says Jörg Warrelmann, Director of Sales Medical in Europe, SCHOTT. “Thanks to our technical expertise and assembly know-how in light and image guides we can help device manufacturers to achieve complex laser delivery system designs and volume production.”
