QUESTION: 

In your blog, Good stripping techniques for your fiber optic cable assembly process, there is a tips for stripping tools called “First, Do No Harm” where you refer to a common 45-degree bend test method. 

Can you give more detail about the bend test?

 

ANSWER:  

In an effort to give more detail, we have added a stripped fiber graphic and bend test explanation to the blog.  Please find them now permanently as reference here: Good stripping techniques for your fiber optic cable assembly process

The bend test explanation is to hold the fiber close to the stripped area (red arrows) bend the stripped fiber about 45 degrees and perform the bending in every direction (360 degrees). Due to the induced stress any damage will lead to a crack of the fiber at the strip transition.
