Chessington South, UK, July 18, 2016, Fujikura Europe is launching two new tension cleavers designed for fibres with a cladding diameter of 80 to 250 µm.
Precise cleaving is required for photonic splicing applications as the types of optical fibre become more diversified to meet new applications. In addition, angled cleaving is often required for low back-reflection fibre end preparation. The CT-101 and CT-102 have been developed to offer adjustability and versatility for these various fibre types and applications while offering superior tension cleaving performance beyond conventional cleavers that utilize a scribe and bend cleaving method. The CT-101 and CT-102 are equipped with a motorized diamond blade that touches the fibre after tension has been applied providing high-strength cleaving capability of 0.3 deg. while CT-100 provides a cleaving performance of 0.5 deg. The CT-101 is designed to accommodate the Fujikura FH-100 fibre holders (FSM-100 series and LZM-100 splicer) while the CT-102 has been designed to accommodate the FH-60 fibre holders (70s splicer)
