April 25, 2006 Morganville, NJ -- Krell Technologies has introduced its Trig workstation for processing bare optical fibers. Using the tool, fiber tips can be polished flat, or at user selectable angles with high precision.
Real-time video monitoring provides accurate control of the shaping process, while an in-line vision system permits inspection of the polished surface while the fiber is loaded in the machine.
Interchangeable adapters are available for various fiber types and diameters. The tool also integrates a PM fiber alignment feature for proper angle orientation.
