A video overview of the Sagitta Cometx-Mt Laser Cleaving System for MT and Simplex Connectors
The Cometx-Mt enables efficient and quick laser cleaving of fibers in a connector after the epoxy curing step. The cleaving is free of chips and other mechanical cleave problems and also enables much more efficient polishing by significantly higher geometry yield and by eliminating at least 1 polishing step from the standard connector termination process.
Quality Benefits of Laser Cleaving Prior to Polishing
- Eliminates operator and tool dependent cleave quality
- Simplifies the polishing process & removes interdependencies
- Eliminates cleave related multimode fiber “core cracking”
- Improves connector reliability – laser “tempers/anneals” fiber endface relieving inherent fiber stresses
