Educational Objectives

  • Fiber Stripping
  • Hot Melt Oven
  • Fiber Connector Installation
  • Connector Grinding and Polishing
  • Inspection Microscope
  • Fiber Breaking
  • Fiber Fusion Splicing
  • Splice Protection Sleeve

This workshop teaches connecting a fiber connector to a bare fiber end as well as arc splicing of two fiber ends. The protection coating of the fibers is removed by a pair of Miller pliers, the fiber is cleaved by a high quality cleaver and the fiber end is fixed to the connector by a hot melt technique. For a high quality connector surface the connector tip is polished using a polishing machine, the quality of the polished surface can be observed through a handheld fiber microscope. Splicing of two fiber ends is achieved with a high performance arc-fusion fiber splicer. Finally, a protecting sleeve covers the spliced area. A basic version without fiber splicer and with a manually polishing option for connectors is offered (CA-1451).
