Monitoring the end-face geometries of polished ferrules is an excellent way to monitor the quality of your polishing fixture. Any significant deficiencies in the fixture will be reflected in end-face geometry parameters.

For example, changes in Apex Offset can indicate possible fixture hole wear or contamination. Changes in Radius can indicate possible poor latching or a worn clamping mechanism. When this situation occurs – if nothing has changed in the polishing process – it may be a good time to replace the plastic latch or the polishing fixture.
