6 May 2003 Morganville, NJ Lightwave--Krell Technologies is introducing the Icon System, a multi-stage platform that integrates optical connector polishing with inspection. Icon fully automates connector processing from air polish through final finishing and quality testing.
In-line inspection includes surface defect analysis and interferometric measurements. Icon utilizes connector workholders that incorporate an independent suspension design for uniform polishing with vastly extended film life. Waveguides, arrays, ferrules and other components are also supported.
