CHESINGTON SOUTH, UK: Fujikura is introducing a new series of Fujikura fibre recoaters – the FSR-05, FSR-06 and FSR-07. The recoaters feature easy-to-exchange moulds for common coating sizes including 196 µm, 255 µm, 280 µm, 450 µm, 670 µm and 1,000 µm. All recoaters consist of a programmable resin injection quantity and colored and non-colored fibre recoating capability. The FSR-06 and FSR-07 recoaters include proof testers to test the strength of fibre after recoating.
Fujikura has launched a new line of high precision large diameter fibre (LDF) cleavers designed for fusion splicing and glass processing preparation.
The Fujikura CT- 105/106 are the first devices for Fujikura in the range to go on sale, and will provide 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 markets.
