AFL Telecommunications to introduce 24-ribbon fusion splicer at OFC, along with a new fiber cleaver and recoater
March 12, 2002
SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- AFL Telecommunications will introduce the world’s first 24-ribbon fusion splicer March 19 – 21 at the Optical Fiber Communication (OFC) conference in Anaheim, Calif. Designed to meet the needs of today’s high fiber density networks, the FSM-40R24 Fusion Splicer is the first splicer on the market with the capability to splice ribbons as large as 24 fibers. With the large volume of 24-ribbon fiber used in the industry, the FSM-40R24 provides tremendous time savings by eliminating the need to split 24 fiber ribbons in two before splicing. To complement the 40R24 fusion splicer, AFL Telecommunications will also introduce its new CT-20 Fiber Cleaver that can cleave from one to 24 fibers in one step. Blade life is increased 25 percent from previous versions with the creation of a new blade design incorporating 16 positions instead of 12. The cleaver features an optional fiber scrap collection system. The lightweight feature of the cleaver combined with its easy, one step, and ergonomic operation makes the CT-20 suitable for both field and factory-splicing conditions, with minimal operator experience.To meet the small package requirements of optical manufacturers, AFL Telecommunications also will introduce its new FSR-02 Fiber Recoater at OFC. AFL Telecommunications will showcase its new fusion splicing offerings at OFC March 19 – 21 in Booth #3232.AFL Telecommunications
