ProCleave LDTM - Inexpensive and Suited for Fibers up to 550 μm

A New Star in the Cleaver Heavens

(PresseBox) (Olching, ) LASER COMPONENTS introduces the new ProCleave LDTM: it is specified at up to 550 μm, but it can still cleave many fibers that have a diameter of 600 μm. Thus, it is ideally suited for use in the production environment and the laboratory, both in laser production and in medical and sensor technology.

Special attention was paid to the development of a cleaver that is easy to use, has high processing speeds, and is reliable. Due to its small footprint of just 10 cm x 15 cm, it can be easily integrated into existing splicing stations and work stations. It is also battery operated for mobile use.

The principle is quite simple: The fiber is subjected to a specified amount of longitudinal tension and cleaved using a diamond blade. The cleaving angles achieve <0.5° at a very good reproducibility. The integrated backstop makes it possible to achieve very good cleave results even with the more difficult double-clad and structured fibers. The pulling force can be continuously adjusted.
