Sumitomo FC-6 & FC-8 Fibre Cleavers
The FC-6S is ideal for use with fusion splicing or other precision applications, setting a new standard for flexibility and performance. The FC-8R is the most versatile tool available for optical fiber cleaving.
The introduction of the FC-6S , you now can have the ultimate precision tool for single fiber cleaving. The FC-6S is available with a single fiber adapter for 250 to 900 micron coated single fibers. It is a simple operation for the user to remove or install the single fiber adapter and alternate between mass and single fiber cleaving.
Built on a robust high-quality platform, theFC-6S is ideal for use with fusion splicing or other precision applications, setting a new standard for flexibility and performance. An optional fiber scrap collector can be installed with the FC-6S to help maintain loose scraps, resulting from the cleaving process. The scrap collector works to automatically grab and store the scrap fibers as the cleaver’s lid is raised, following a completed cleave.
The FC-8R is Sumitomo Electric’s newest 1-Step optical fibre cleaver with automatic blade rotation and a digital cleave counter. It is the ideal tool for use in fusion splicing, field termination, or any application that requires precision in a confined space. It has a simple cleaving operation that can be performed in the palm of the hand, allowing the user to take the cleaver to fibre in limited slack or cramped applications. A built-in extra large fibre scrap collector handles scrap fibers resulting from the cleaving process. more....
