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.

Wireless tablet control provides the programming freedom required for research, as well as simplified step-by-step operation for manufacturing technicians. Workholder fixtures are easily interchangeable for each task, and optional videoscopes are available for real-time process monitoring and in-line surface inspection. Whether developing new optical devices, improving component performance or manufacturing Telcordia compliant cable assemblies, NOVA is the ideal polishing system, the company claims.
