Overview of Lapping Film

Fiber Optic Center Helps You

choose your
lapping film wisely

Lapping film choices are critical in the polishing step as the quality of the film is directly related to the quality of the results.

Z

Consistency

Quality film with the highest lot to lot consistency keeps production accurate over time. Without a consistent lapping film polishing results and production costs cannot be controlled.

Z

Critical Geometry Parameters

Poor film quality will lead to uncontrolled geometry results and increased rework. Radius, Apex Offset, and Fiber Height are all generated and controlled during polishing. 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.

Z

Reducing Cost

Reducing film cost and increasing capacity is critical to producing the highest quality jumpers at the most effective cost. Film choice is key to less rework equaling cost reduction. 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.

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.
