Technological processes are developed for fabricating fluoride glass products with the use of different molding methods, such as free molding, controlled molding, mechanically activated injection molding, and forced molding at low temperatures and high pressures. A multimodule facility is designed for fabricating fluorozirconate, fluorohafnate, and fluoroaluminate glass products in the form of disks, plates, cylinders, blocks, tubes, rods, and optical fibers. Fluoride glass products are intended for the use in multifunctional multifiber systems for transmitting molecular, thermal, and other types of information.
