Fiber Cleaver for Large-core Fibers

I-Cleave Can Also be Used for Polyimide Fibers

I Cleave
(PresseBox) ( Olching, )
LASER COMPONENTS introduces a new fiber cleaver that allows the handling of polyimide fibers. The so-called I-Cleave is developed by our partner SEDI-ATI and allows the cleaving of large-core fibers that have a core diameter from 200 μm to 1500 μm.

A diamond tip is used to make a small cut on the outer diameter of the fiber, and the fiber is then broken by applying longitudinal force along the optical axis. Any undue strain on the fiber is avoided. This results in scratch-free surfaces that are perfectly perpendicular to the optical axis.

V-groove jigs allow a secure mounting in a fixed position. With an additional mounting kit polyimide fibers can also be cleaved directly without having to remove the polyimide buffer, which would be costly and time consuming.
