Fiber Optic Center offers the best solutions for manufacturing fiber optic cable assemblies. Cleaving in preparation for polishing, has a manual and automated option.

We provide the highest quality equipment backed with industry-leading technical support and exceptional customer service for all options.

Manual cleaving or scoring the fiber with a fiber scribe, and then breaking the fibers away from the ferrule requires hand-tool scribes.

Automated cleaving relies on a machine to cut through the epoxy bead, cutting away a majority of the epoxy bead while cutting the fibers at the same time. In addition to laser cutting systems, high-speed precision saws are also an option.

Our technical staff has detailed hands-on knowledge of the equipment we sell. We can help you find the right system for your application and offer on-site training to ensure that you are up and running in the least amount of time possible. When you purchase through FOC, you can also be sure that you will receive the utmost support throughout the products life.

FEATURED PRODUCT

DOMAILLE OPTISABER SINGLE FIBER LASER CLEAVER

The OptiSaber Laser Cleaver is the finest fiber forming machine on the market which increases production yield on multi-fiber (MTP/MPO) and single fiber applications. Significant cost savings and reduction in process variation associated with cracking typical of mechanical cleaving methods. Additional time savings include uniform starting point for less polishing, consistent epoxy removal, elimination of safety concerns (minimize handling of scrap fiber) and reduction in the overall cost of terminations.

FEATURED PRODUCT

COMETX-SI LASER CLEAVING SYSTEM FOR SIMPLEX CONNECTORS

The Cometx-Si enables efficient and quick laser cleaving of the fiber after the epoxy curing step. The cleaving is free of chips and other mechanical cleave problems and also enables much more efficient polishing by eliminating at least 1 diamond polishing step from the standard connector termination process.

FEATURED PRODUCT

PHENIX FIBERSECT MECHANICAL CONNECTOR CLEAVER

The fibersect quickly cuts off the epoxy/fibers protruding from the face of connector ferrules including MTs. First Pass Yield and throughput are improved by minimizing polishing and eliminating the manual cleaving and denubbing steps. The resulting flat cut, very close to the ferrule face, presents the ideal starting point for polishing and improves end face geometry.

The resulting flat cut, very close to the ferrule face, presents the ideal starting point for polishing and improves end face geometry. MT ferrules, from 4 to 72 fibers, flat or 8ø can all be cut with ease. The fibersect’s small footprint and battery power provides exceptional portability on the production floor.
