  • Fused Silica Glass Flexures

    Flexure mechanisms made of metals have been utilized in precision instruments for several hundreds of years, but until recently, you could not procure one made out of fused silica glass. Pity! Because fused silica flexures may be the best option for your precision application, really!

Arrival of CRS-3 Dragon at ISSArrival of CRS-3 Dragon at ISS

The Space X CRS-3 Dragon Resupply Mission to the International Space Station (ISS) was successfully launched on April 18, 2014 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The Dragon capsule, carrying Translume components, was grappled on 20 April by Expedition 39 commander Koichi Wakata. The spacecraft is now berthed to the ISS.

For the first time, high-precision flexures and cantilevers with integrated optical waveguides are commercially available. Many have already discovered that our fused silica flexures, with their near-zero coefficient of thermal expansion, and their almost perfect elastic behavior, provide exceptional advantages in demanding metrology applications. In addition these flexures and cantilevers can now be procured with integrated waveguides.
