Corning’s position as the industry leader in fiber optics comes from its relentless dedication to revolutionizing product and system innovations. From the invention of low-loss optical fiber to the creation of the world’s first Center for Fiber Optic Testing, Corning’s storied tradition of innovation and product improvement remains constant. Corning leads the industry by focusing on the three most crucial aspects of its business: quality products, superior manufacturing processes and comprehensive dedicated customer service. This total commitment to quality and support sets us apart from others in the industry.
Using our patented outside vapor deposition technology, Corning manufactures ultra-pure, telecommunication-grade optical fiber. To ensure consistency and reliability, Corning produces all the glass materials for its fiber. The fiber making process begins by creating "preforms" of glass on proprietary vapor deposition lathes, with chemistry controlled so precisely that contaminant levels are measured in parts per billion. These preforms are sintered into a solid, dense, transparent glass and subsequently drawn into coated optical fiber the diameter of a human hair, with dimensional precision at the one-micron level. Additional manufacturing steps test the fiber for strength at 100,000 pounds per square inch and fully measure its optical performance before shipment to customers.
What makes Corning optical fiber unique in the industry is our innovative technology and manufacturing process, our continued commitment to making the highest quality products, our world-class R&D and measurement facilities, and our unsurpassed technical support for our customers. You can always expect the best from Corning.
