Engineering & Support

Fujikura Europe provides custom engineering services to optimise splicing, glass processing applications and fibre operation processes. Our services offer custom hardware, software design and consultation.

To help accelerate your products to market, our team can assist in the fabrication and development of optical components which may require a critical splice. This includes dissimilar fibre splicing, ball lens, tapering, TEC, combiners, and Mode Field Adaptors (MFA).

We provide on-site training and advanced splicer training with the use of specialty splicing equipment of the ARCMasterâ„¢ series from the FSM-100M to the LAZERMaster LZM-100 Laser Splicing System. Advanced splicer training is organised at Fujikura's European Technical Centre and located in Surrey, South West of London.

Optimisation

Optimising is becoming increasingly important to achieve high quality splicing against the constant introduction of new fibres and the mixing of fibre types. By working with our customers and understanding their evolving needs, we know how optimisation is essential in minimising splice loss and keeping splices physically robust in areas that include opto-electronic applications such as optical amplifiers and sensors.

Our service can involve testing of 50 splicer machine parameters, ranging from splicer arc power to fibre movement rate. Since splicers also include loss estimation functions, a separate loss estimation optimization is performed to maximize the accuracy of the loss estimation function on the machine to provide the most accurate splice loss readings.

In the Fujikura FSM100 and Fujikura LZM100 machines, optimisation plays an important role in maximizing benefits of sweep arc technology, which minimizes the effects of differences in mode field diameters in a pair of fibres, thereby minimizing splice loss.

Fujikura Europe can provide bespoke optimization parameters. All the parameters can be easily downloaded into customer fusion splicers for immediate operation.
