Automated optical fiber cleavers for high-volume manufacturing
Vytran introduced fully automated large-diameter fiber cleavers incorporating the tension-and-scribe cleaving technology proven in the LDC-400 cleavers along with a host of new features to facilitate automated volume production. The CAC-400 produces consistent flat cleaves with mirror-quality end-face finishes on fibers from 60 to 600 microns in diameter. The CAC-400-A creates both flat and angled cleaves. The systems can be used on conventional and specialty fibers, with options for soft glasses, photonic crystal fibers (PCF) and many more.

The cleavers allow automated high-volume production of fiber lasers, fiber-based medical and sensing devices and other fiber components and assemblies.

CAC-400 cleavers can be used as stand-alone tools or integrated with the CAS-4000 Series splicers.
  • Precision Cleave™ for superior cleave positioning, high-consistency low-cleave-angle, and mirror-like facet quality
  • Ultra-simple user interface
  • Controlled via a standard web browser
  • E-Splice™ for full remote control, system monitoring and data export

Compact semi-automated splicers
CAS-4100 and CAS-4100-P are compact, semi-automated splicers that produce high-strength, consistent splices quickly and efficiently. CAS systems feature a unique design, advanced imaging capabilities and programming flexibility. They are based on Vytran‘s proven filament fusion technology—the industry’s most reliable method for creating high-strength, low-loss splices.

They are ideal for development applications and cost-effective, high-volume production, including three-shift manufacturing. CAS-4100-P is tailored for polarization maintaining (PM) fibers.

Glass processing and fusion splicing
GPX-3000 is a unique, multipurpose glass processing platform for creating splices, combiners, tapers, couplers, end-caps and other fiber processes with optical fibers from 80 microns to 1.8 mm in diameter. GPX-3000 systems are built around a unique filament “furnace” assembly - a stable, intense heat source that can be precisely controlled over a wide temperature range - to ensure optimum glass processing conditions.

The systems are ideal for R&D and production applications that demand accuracy, versatility and repeatability such as fiber laser and medical device manufacturing.

Specialty fibers
The specialty optical fibers available from AMS Technologies have high performance coatings that enable to operate at extreme temperatures and survive in harsh environments. An array of non-standard fibers is available to meet different fiber needs: custom core / cladding sizes, custom NAs, narrow / broad wavelength transmission, etc.

These optical fibers have proven effective in a number of applications such as rocket, turbine and jet engine monitoring. They have also been used in aircraft, missiles, spacecraft sensing and measurement, radiation resistant sensors and ultra high vacuum devices.
