OpTek Systems today announced the approval of the LaserCleave™1500-MXC tool by US optical connector manufacturer US Conec for use in the production of its multi-row PRIZM® MT Connector solutions.
This extends the qualification of the LaserCleave™ 1500 tool from the single row PRIZM® LightTurn® product which was certified in 2013 to include up to four rows of 12-fiber ribbons. Extension to more fibers per row, and more rows, continues.
“We are pleased to have this endorsement from US Conec to allow the use of our laser-processing platforms for their exciting new optical interconnect product,” said Mike Osborne, OpTek’s Technical Director. “This builds on more than 15 years of laser fiber-processing experience, and adds to a growing number of next-generation non-polish connectors that are now using OpTek machines”.
The LaserCleave™1500-LT & MXCTM tools are part of a family of products manufactured by OpTek Systems for processing optical fiber terminations. The product range includes tools for processing conventional connectors requiring a final polishing step, high performance terminations for field installable connectors, and advanced non-polish optical interconnects for the emerging very-high-volume markets.
OpTek Systems is the world leader in laser processing tools for optical fibers through its LaserCleave™ range of machines which serve the conventional connectorization, active devices, fiber-lasers, and next-generation connector markets including the US Conec PRIZM® LightTurn® and Prizm® MT and MXCTM non-polish connectors.
