FFS-2000 Fusion Splicing Workstation

FFS-2000 is an all-in-one workstation that combines all fusion splicing processes from fiber stripping through proof testing into a single system so users can create high-strength, consistent splices quickly and efficiently. The system’s workstation design, along with unmatched imaging capabilities and extensive programming flexibility, makes it ideal for both volume production and R&D applications.
At the foundation of FFS-2000 is our proven filament fusion technology—the industry’s most reliable method for creating high-strength, low-loss splices. Additionally, FFS-2000’s high-accuracy cleaver produces quality cleaves to optimize splice strength. The system also utilizes True Core Imaging™, a high-resolution imaging system that enables fast, accurate inner-core alignment and splice loss calculation. Its intuitive GUI allows complete process configuration and control, and a networkable database lets users record all splicing data, enabling high throughput and flexible manufacturing. FFS-2000’s recoating station produces acrylate coatings that preserve the fiber’s original diameter, flexibility and long-term strength.
