Three advanced splicing technologies

Accurate

Accurate “Eyesight”

Dedicated design for the best fusion splicing experience

The image capturing system in the fusion splicers consists of
2 pairs of “Microscope” and “CMOS image sensor”.

State-of-the-art image capturing system takes ultra-precise fiber images to analyze the core position, regardless of fiber type.
The main features are...

Feature 1

Microscopes

The optimally designed microscope has the best eye to observe the optical fibers.
The lens are specifically designed for fusion splicing, which we have been continuously improving for more than 30 years.

Feature 2

CMOS image sensors

High resolution CMOS image sensors precisely capture the image from the microscope lens.

Intelligent

Intelligent “Brain”

Only the true image processing algorithm enables the true “Core Alignment fusion splicer“

The captured image data is transferred to the CPU to analyze
the exact fiber dimensions and core position.

The true "Core Alignment Splicer" recognizes the exact position of the fiber core. The main feature is…

Feature

Image processing algorithm

The fusion splicer recognizes the fibers as 3-dimensional objects by processing two orthogonal fiber images. Intelligent real-time image processing algorithm is the key technology, which we have cultivated as the pioneer of fiber optic technologies.

Precise

Precise “Movement“

Realize ultra-precise core alignment for low loss splice

The fibers are aligned at sub-micron accuracy
based on the recognized core position.

High precision mechanism realizes ultra-precise core alignment for low loss splice.
The main feature is ...

Feature

High precision mechanism

Fine tuned V-grooves and micro movement mechanism realize core alignment at the sub-micron level.
Combined with the real time image processing, the world’s quickest and finest splice is achieved.
