Fujikura launches new range of high-precision LDF cleavers
Fujikura has launched a new line of high precision large diameter fibre (LDF) cleavers designed for fusion splicing and glass processing preparation.
The CT- 105 and CT-106 are the first in the range to go on sale, providing advanced cleaving solutions for end-users in fibrelaser and optical fibre sensor applications - across the oil and gas, university, R&D, submarine cabling, defence, optical components and medical sectors.
These new cleavers offer high precision LDF capability - applicable from 80 up to 1,250 μm diameter fibres, and can perform both flat and angled cleaves to a precision that tops anything available on the market. High precision angled cleaving functionality is provided by the CT-106 with cleaving angles of 0-15o .
"This unique and patent-pending product delivers outstanding cleaving performance and is in-line with Fujikura's mission to produce only the highest quality equipment at the forefront of technology excellence and innovation," said Neil Bessant, Fusion Splicer division Manager of Fujikura Europe. "Our products are engineered with a robust set of features that offer customers technology and reliability whilst providing excellent value."
The LDF cleavers’ advanced capabilities include extensive programmable features to ensure optimal and consistent results.
- programmable automatic clamp function
- angle cleaving function
- storage for up to 100 program modes
- blade life of 20,000 cleaves with a cladding diameter of 125 μm
- colour LCD monitor.
Applicable optical fibres include not only solid glass optical fibres, but microstructured fibres and capillaries as well.
