One of the most important decisions a cable assembly production, or process manager will make, is which lapping film to use. Without a consistent lapping film, production costs can not be controlled. Instead of quickly and efficiently fulfilling work orders, costly reworks will eat up both time and resources.
Lapping film that only lasts a few cycles before it needs to be thrown away can also lead to a much higher per termination cost than a film that lasts up to 10, 20 or 30 cycles. Our SEQUOIA Diamond films are designed to last well over 10 cycles. Achieving consistent results that meet the demanding technical specifications for single mode systems requires the optimization of many factors throughout the termination and testing process.
