OpTek Systems, the global leader in laser processing of optical fibers, is pleased to announce that Connected Fibers, LLC (Atlanta, GA) has been chosen as the North American distributor for the LaserCleaveTM platform. The LaserCleaveTM is a compact, production-ready tool designed to maximize productivity in optical connector and component manufacturing. “Connected Fibers has long been committed to offering next generation solutions to connector manufacturers. Our customers are seeking technologies that improve connectorization quality and lower manufacturing costs and they rely on Connected Fibers to maintain an edge over off-shore producers. With the elimination of operator variability in scribing, coupled with the dramatic savings in consumable and labor costs, the LaserCleaveTM system offers the competitive advantage our domestic industry needs,” says Adam Geraci, Chief Sales Officer, Connected Fibers, LLC. Central to the LaserCleaveTM technology’s core value is the elimination of mechanical scribing, which is prone to fiber chips and hackle, and the reduction of polishing steps that are required for GR-326 (Telcordia) compliance. The LaserCleaveTM platform consists of tools for cleaving simplex connectors, bare fibers, and multi-fiber connectors, including ribbon fiber. “Connected Fibers has proven themselves as a leader in fiber optic connector manufacturing and equipment distribution.
