OpTek’s Laser fiber machine, working on processes include laser cleaving, fiber cleaving, angle cleaving, ribbon cleaving(12fibers/24fibers or more), laser lensing, laser stripping, and laser fusing of fiber end caps.
Originally developed to meet the optical telecommunications market, to create high-quality terminations on the most common single mode, multimode, and polarization maintaining optical fibers. These included 0° to 45° angled cleaves, and lenses machined directly onto optical fiber ends.
The laser processing approach offers improved optical performance over mechanically cleaved or polished ends and helped to drive higher efficiencies, easy the produce process. and keep the range of quality stabe. Today this approach provides the same advantages to applications including fiber lasers, medical devices, sensing, active optical interconnects, and can be applied to a wide range of fiber types including those with more complex structures.
