POLISH

Polish

Fiber Optic Center is dedicated to offering the best practices and solutions for manufacturing fiber optic cable assemblies. At the polishing step, the right equipment and lapping film combination make all the difference; quality is key. Even with the best systems, high first-pass yields are difficult to achieve and sustain. Processes need to be well defined and easy to follow. Operators need to be well trained. However, with subpar equipment, they’re impossible to achieve.

FOC focuses on several areas to ensure industry-leading solutions and best practices including:

FOC helps YOU become more efficient, reduce costs and increase yields.

Selecting the right polishing platform determines production capacity and costs for the next decade. A stable polishing platform and process is essential for a high production output and low cost. When geometrical parameters and superb visual appearance are achieved, the hidden cost of rework and measurement is minimalized.

Our team of polish experts provide remote polishing assistance and guide to the highest first-pass production yields within a matter of a second. With cutting edge equipment, automation and process controls.

Critical Areas in the Polish STEP

  • Industry Standards: Polishing with a high-quality machine and high-precision fixturing allows consistent polishing results that meet industry standards on polished ferrule end-face geometries (such as IEC 61755-3-1).
  • Critical Geometry Parameters: Radius, Apex Offset, and Fiber Height are all generated and controlled during polishing. Worn-out fixturing, inconsistent polishing pressures or uncontrolled polishing procedures will lead to uncontrolled geometry results and increased rework.
  • Manufacturing Procedure Development: In addition to tighter control on geometry, reducing film cost and increasing capacity is critical to producing the highest quality jumpers at the most effective cost.
  • Critical Maintenance: Proper film selection, fixture and machine maintenance, cleaning procedures are an integral part of highest first pass production yields.

FEATURED PRODUCT

DOMAILLE APM-HDC-5300 PROGRAMMABLE POLISHING MACHINE

HDC-5300 polisher allows you to program your polishing processes through an easy-to-use PC-based Windows-like full-color touch screen panel. Once programmed, the panel displays your settings for speed, time, and pressure, and also prompts the operator for the film, pad, and lubricant needed for each step of the process. The number of processes that can be defined and stored within the HDC-5300 is only limited by the amount of machine memory. This means hundreds of processes and steps within each process can be stored on a single machine. If the number of connectors loaded into the polishing fixture is less than the default that has been programmed, the automatic pressure adjustment feature allows the operator to enter the actual number of connectors loaded. The required pressure is then automatically recalculated to ensure that the individual connector force remains constant regardless of the number of connectors assumed in the process definition..

FEATURED PRODUCT

DOMAILLE FPM-HDA-600 FIELD POLISHING MACHINE (220V AC, 50HZ)

A compact version of the Advanced Polishing Machines, our Field Polishing Machine (FPM-HDA-500) can be transported for on-site fiber optic cable installation and emergency repair use. It is designed to achieve the same accuracy as Domaille’s larger machines, but with fewer features. The international version, FPM-HDA-600, is also available which is equiped to operate at 220VAC, 50/60 Hz.
