3SAE’s patented 3-Phase Ring of Fire® wide area plasma technology makes 3SAE the world’s leading innovator for advanced fusion splicing and optical glass processing. Our Ring of Fire® technology is used in applications such as, High Power Fiber Lasers, Optical Fiber Combiners, Precision Fiber Tapering, Large Diameter Fiber (LDF) Splicing, Photonic Crystal Fiber (PCF) processing, Polarization Maintaining (PM) fiber splicing, and Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFA) manufacturing.
As a Furukawa Electric Company technology partner, 3SAE’s patented 3-Phase Ring of Fire® wide area plasma technology is incorporated into the Fitel S184 Fusion Splicer product line. 3SAE Technologies is the primary authorized OFS/Fitel OEM fusion splicer distributor in North America, offering a complete line of fusion splicing solutions for the medical, high power fiber laser, aerospace & defense, telecommunications, oil & gas, and HD broadcasting markets.
Fitel's complete line of hand-held fusion splicers bring portability and reliability to any splicing environment whether the application requires core alignment splicing, active xyz cladding alignment, fixed v-groove cladding alignment, or mass fusion splicing up to 12 fibers. For specialty fiber fusion splicing, Fitel’s S183PM Series II fusion splicer and the S184PM, three electrode, Large diameter (LD) splicer provides advanced capabilities for fibers ranging from 80um to 1mm in diameter. For even larger LD fibers or specialty applications 3SAE’s Large Diameter Splicing (LDS) system is a fully customizable glass processing station for LD splicing, fiber tapering, fiber bundling, mode field adapters (MFA’s), and end-cap splicing in one convenient platform.
