3SAE Technologies Introduces New Bend Proof Tester and Cleaver for Large Diameter Fiber

Innovative designs meet need for low-cost, large diameter splicing accessories

(FRANKLIN, Tenn.) Jan. 31, 2014 — 3SAE Technologies, a dominant leader in advanced fiber optic preparation tools and glass processing equipment, will introduce a new Large Diameter Bend Proof Tester and Fiber Cleaver at Photonics West 2014 in San Francisco, Feb. 4-6.

“Large diameter splicing presents its own set of unique challenges,” said Don Grasso, Chief Executive Officer of 3SAE Technologies. “Finally, these unique tools bring low-cost, large diameter splicing accessories to the market and address critical industry needs without sacrificing performance in the factory or field,” Grasso said.

The new Bend Proof Tester, designed and manufactured by 3SAE, is also the first commercially available unit for testing the mechanical splice strength of large diameter fibers measuring 250um to 1mm.

Additionally, the new Large Diameter Fiber Cleaver is a compact, battery-operated unit that specifically accommodates fiber diameters from 125um to 550um. This unit is designed and manufactured by NorthLab Photonics in Stockholm, Sweden, to meet the need for an affordable large diameter fiber cleaver suitable for both factory and field use. NorthLab has served as 3SAE’s European master distributor and service/support center for over five years and the two companies recently entered into a joint private label agreement to expand their product lines and brands globally.

Photonics companies from around the world will have the opportunity to demo 3SAE’s new Large Diameter Bend Proof Tester and Large Diameter Fiber Cleaver in 3SAE’s booth #4936 at Photonics West.
