The low-cost FiberOptic 7010 cuts and removes the Kevlar material of fiber optic cables with complete accuracy to a remaining length between 3 and 60 mm (0.12 and 2.36").
The FiberOptic 7010 Kevlar cutting machine cuts and removes Kevlar fibers from optical fiber wires. Kevlar, used as a strength member, is very hard to cut with common tools, such as scissors. The patented system easily separates and draws the Kevlar into the cutting head, where it is severed. An efficient vacuum system with a micro-pore filter disposes of the separated Kevlar, ensuring that no fibers can reach the respiratory organs. The built-in vacuum system separates the Kevlar strands from the fiber optic wire and positions them in the cutting head. A pneumatic initiated stroke of the cutting blade onto the anvil accurately severs the fibers. The number of cutting strokes can be adapted to the thickness of the material.
