LaserCleave

OpTek Systems has launched the second generation of its bench-top tool for termination of optical interconnects. The company says the LaserCleave is a compact, production-ready platform designed to maximise productivity in optical connector manufacturing.

Central to the LaserCleave-1500 technology’s core value is the elimination of mechanical scribing, which is prone to fibre chips and hackle, and the reduction of mechanical polishing steps that are used in the traditional finishing of connectors.
