Precision Tungsten Carbide Ball in stock for extreme applications
We offer a range of optical and technical glass balls made mostly from Schott and Ohara materials.
Swiss Jewel supplies hemispheres which are ideal as Hemispherical Lenses and Spacers.
BK-7 Hemispherical Lenses are perfect for light collimation and coupling.
To minimize the loss of the light’s performance, ball lenses will be given an AR coating.
The Swiss Jewel Company supplies Fused Silica (Quartz) Balls from 0.30 mm to 10.00 mm that are ideal for Fused Silica Lenses.
We can supply any of our precision balls with drilled holes, which provides an excellent way to mount the ball in an instrument.
Swiss Jewel supplies ceramic balls typically used in electric insulation, spaces and wear surfaces.
Black Glass Balls are typically used in gauges, flowmeters, and rotameters for medical and industrial instrumentation.
