Hand Tools

Fiber Optic Center is dedicated to offering the best practices and solutions for manufacturing fiber optic cable assemblies including the hand tools designed specifically for the fiber optics industry.

Due to the inherently small nature of fiber, these tools have to adhere to a more stringent standard to operate effectively. FOC focuses on first-tier tool manufacturers and the areas that ensure industry leading solutions and best practices including:

  • Damage Avoidance: Small scratches or dents on the fiber surface caused by improper handling can be the root cause of fiber cracks.
  • Quality & Stability: Worn-out tools can cause cracking over time. Long-term stability is determined by the skills of an operator as well as the quality of their tools.
  • Tool Selection: Any damage to the fiber during stripping, such as nicks caused by contact with the stripping tool blades, can significantly increase chances of fiber breaking within the connector.

We provide the highest quality equipment backed with industry-leading technical support and exceptional customer service.  With cutting edge equipment, automation and process controls, FOC helps YOU become more efficient, reduce costs and increase yields.
