MORGANVILLE, N.J., Aug. 2, 2011 — Krell Technologies Inc.’s UVG universal workholder polishes any fiber optic component that incorporates a UPC-style ferrule with a diameter between 1.25 and 3.2 mm. This includes industry-standard connectors such as SC, FC, ST, LC, MU, E2000 and SMA. M29504, TFOCA and ARINC 801 Mil-spec termini and contacts also can be loaded in the UVG. Bare ferrules and fiber adapters also are supported. The fixture interfaces with proprietary Scepter, SpecPro, Rev and Proton precision fiber optic polishing machines.

It integrates independent suspension and optical alignment at each component position. Independent suspension permits automated air polishing and provides equalized pressure distribution for each component. Optically aligned positions yield Telcordia compliance for end-face geometry on a consistent basis.

A single UVG workholder will accommodate an extensive range of UPC connectors and termini, eliminating the need for purchasing multiple sets of costly polishing fixtures.

Besides standard connectors and termini, the UVG can accommodate many devices that integrate lightguides, including medical cannula, fiber bundles, laser delivery cables and lenses.

It interfaces with the proprietary SpecVision videoscope that allows a technician to inspect the fiber polish while the component is still loaded in the UVG. In-line inspection reduces materials handling and eliminates the fiber damage and contamination normally encountered when transferring components from a traditional polisher to an inspection station. This feature streamlines production and provides immediate quality feedback while minimizing product rework.
