Connector cleaving using OpTek’s patented LaserCleave™ process for routine production of optical connectors and terminations. LaserCleave™ desktop production tools are built around the same OpTek technology that has been relied upon in performance critical, volume production of fiber optic components since 1990’s. The core values of the LaserCleave™ are the elimination of mechanical scribing and the reduction of polishing steps required for connector finishing.
The base model of the product family is designed to cut fiber and epoxy on a single fiber connector ferrule prior to conventional polishing.
The single fiber ferrule models are designed to minimize the number of polishing steps requireds to finish the connector by cutting close to the ferrule face, with a profile that prevents unnecessary damage to the polishing films.
For single fiber ferrules with low to moderate epoxy bead size the LaserCleave-SSP produces and end that can be polished in a single step with finishing film.
The range will also accommodate multi-fiber ferrules such as the MT, plus free fibers,ribbon and stubs.
