SPARTANBURG, S.C., Sept. 16, 2014 — New automatic preparation machines from AFL allow technicians to strip, clean and cleave fibers in 18 to 21 seconds.
The APM-101 and APM-102 automatically perform all the steps necessary to prepare optical fibers before splicing, including stripping the fiber without noticeably degrading fiber quality, cleaning fiber with alcohol to remove coating residue and cleaving consistently at a right angle to the fiber axis.
The machines are designed with the same operating height as Fujikura fusion splicers and are suited for high-volume fiber assembly operations.
