The AutoCleaver LDF is a high precision fibre
cleaver, designed for cleaving of Large Diameter Fibres up to
1000um. An unique and patent pending cleaving process generates
typical cleave angles of less than 0.5°.
The built in microprocessor controls all vital
parameters and settings, such as fibre alignment, clamping, fibre
tension and the exact position and speed of the diamond blade. This
control of sensitive parameters guarantees a high cleaving
repeatability and accuracy.
Cleaving performance is enhanced by the use of fibre handling kits
that are optimised for a specific fibre dimension. The fibre is
held in place by an external fibre holder that is used on the
splicer to be used. The cleaver is designed to generate minimum
amounts of fibre waste, typically less than 20mm. An automatic
waste disposal system removes any hazardous fibre scraps.
The cleaver can be connected to an external PC,
that gives access to all programmable parameters and settings. The
AutoCleaver LDF has a small bench top design.
