KrellTech (booth 3441) will display its new NOVA optical polishing system. Building on the performance and features of its range of existing polishers, NOVA is a highly configurable and cost-effective system that supports a variety of polishing applications, from connectors to waveguides, and bare fibres to custom components. NOVA is scalable from R&D projects to mass production, and withstands the rigours of high-reliability field installation.
