What is the process to follow if the step ferrules are not pre-angled?



Polishing step ferrules: Angle cutting

If the step ferrules are not pre-angled, you must, of course, create the angle as part of the polishing process. A good general rule-of-thumb is to aim to have the angle cut all the way across the surface before starting the 1-micron step in the polishing process. Briefly, this often means increasing polishing time or using a more aggressive lapping film in the early polishing steps until the angle is cut all the way across the ferrule surface.
