Engineering and optimising service

Fujikura Europe has launched an 'engineering and optimisation service', aimed at helping customers get the most out of their splicing equipment.

The company says its specialist team of engineers can assist in the fabrication and development of optical components which may require a critical splice. This includes dissimilar fibre splicing, ball lens, tapering, combiners, thermal expansion of core, and mode field adaptors.

The service has been launched at a time when optimisation is becoming increasingly important to achieve high-quality splicing and compete against the constant introduction of new fibres and the mixing of fibre types.

'Through working with our customers and understanding their evolving needs, we know how optimisation is essential in minimising splice loss and keeping splices physically robust in areas that include opto-electronic applications, such as optical amplifiers and sensors,' said Neil Bessant, fusion splicer divisional manager at Fujikura Europe.

'We have a team of specialist engineers on site to show customers how they can use their specialty splicing technology in different ways in order to bring in more business and work faster.'
