Bodkin Engineers Optical Inspection Camera for FiberQA
Jul 2017
NEWTON, Mass., Aug. 9, 2017 — Bodkin Design & Engineering LLC has custom-engineered an optical inspection camera for FiberQA LLC, including design, prototype and manufacturing of pre-production units.

Bodkin’s camera subassembly is part of a larger system that includes automated functions for the translation, inspection and cleaning of ganged fiber optic connectors. This particular device is designed for low-profile, multi-fiber connectors in relatively inaccessible installation zones. FiberQA has ordered additional production units following successful testing of the prototypes.

“Providing reliable quality assurance is of utmost importance in our industry and requires top-of-the-line components to create the most accurate results,” said Joe Salemi, vice president of sales and marketing at FiberQA. “In order to provide automated inspection and cleaning in very difficult to reach spaces, we needed a camera that could work within our small AVIT-rh head design. Our relationship with Bodkin has allowed us to make our AVIT-rh system a reality, providing the best probe-style fiber optic inspection system to Mil-Aero companies seeking fully automated, reliable, cost effective testing of multiple ferrule connectors with both single and multiple termini ferrules.”

Bodkin is a provider of electro-optic engineering and custom manufacturing of special equipment as well as test and R&D services.
