Compact Ring-of-Fire Instruments for Laboratory and Production

Precise Splices for Large-core Fibers up to 800 µm
(PresseBox) ( Olching, )
With its FITEL S185ROF and S185PMROF models, Furukawa has completed its new series of cost-effective, user-friendly splicers for laboratory and production. Both newcomers use ring-of-fire technology and are primarily designed for processing large fiber diameters between 500 µm and 800 µm. The PMROF version with its integrated rotating device also supports non-rotationally symmetric specialty products such as polarization-maintaining PANDA and D-shaped fibers.

The ring-of-fire process uses three electrodes instead of the usual two. They generate a “ring of fire” of plasma around the fiber; thus, even optical fibers with large cladding diameters can be heated in a non-contact, fast, and controlled manner, which is a basic requirement for precise, durable splices.

All S185 series models are available in Germany and Austria through LASER COMPONENTS
