3SAE Auto Strip II
Automated Mid Span Window Stripping Unit
The AutoStripII is designed for fast, chemical free window stripping of optical fibers. Utilizing our patented Burst Technology™, it accomplishes the often difficult task of window stripping fibers with acrylate coating diameters up to 1,000 μm. The AutoStripII meets the need for variable window strip lengths at high strength and ultra cleanliness.
The proven Burst Technology™ method instantly vaporizes the fiber coating. The result is a clean, stripped fiber, at substantially higher strength than any mechanical stripping method. The fiber is free of debris at 400x magnification. The AutoStripII is also equipped with a built-in, high force, fiber tensile tester, which can pull the fiber up to 235 kpsi (20 N).
To insure high quality, repeatability and high production yield, all critical processes and parameters such as stripping distance, burst temperature, burst speed, and strength test are controlled automatically by a built-in microprocessor. The AutoStripII can be used as a stand-alone unit or integrated into different sub-systems. The use of chemicals for high strength fiber stripping is now a thing of the past!
