Connector supplies with any quality supply their UPC or pre-angled APC connector ferrules within the Telcordia spec for Radius of Curvature and Apex Offset.  Depending on the size of the ferrule and the amount of damage or reforming that needs to been done, this is usually one or two steps with diamond lapping film.

Diamond lapping films cut and polish the hard ceramic ferrules and the softer fibers close to the same rate, easily controlling fiber undercut or protrusion. If the ferrules aren’t pre-radius or pre-angled additional steps might be required.  The final step is almost always a specialized final film that both buffers out the minuet defects and allows for the correct fiber height.
