FiberStrip 7030

Stripping Machine

Overview

Schleuniger's state-of-the-art FiberStrip 7030 is specifically designed for stripping buffers and/or coatings from glass fibers with the highest possible quality and repeatability. This machine handles strip lengths up to 35 mm (1.4").

  • High precision stripping of buffers and coatings from glass optical fibers
  • Light and portable - for field use and work cell
  • Adjustable temperature heating and dwell time system

Application Range

The FiberStrip 7030 machine is compact, yet packed with features. This machine strips single fiber in a semi-automatic fashion without touching the glass fiber. The FiberStrip 7030 is designed for stripping single coated and buffered fibers. It serves as an ideal companion to cleaving and splicing devices for standard and high strength splicing.

The Versatile Specialist for Highest Quality Demands

Guaranteed Quality:

Due to the special blade geometry and integrated centering aid, contact with the glass fiber during the stripping process is not possible. A poorly stripped fiber causes surface damage to the glass, which will weaken it, leading to premature mechanical failure. Using a high precision, repeatable stripping process is the only way to guarantee the quality of the end product.

Variable System:

A variety of optional quick-change clamping systems are available, allowing the machine to be modified to hold the type of fiber being processed. Adapters are available to accept the docking of fiber holders from many different fusion splicer manufacturers.

Compact Design:

The compact design makes the FiberStrip 7030 well suited for use in the field or in a high production environment. Despite its diminuitive size, all functions are automated to ensure repeatable, high quality stripping results.

Controlled Process:

The fiber to be stripped is heated up to a preset temperature for a preset dwell time. Once the dwell time is complete, the coating is stripped from the fiber at a constant, adjustable speed. These features, coupled with the precision mechanics, result in an cleanly stripped fiber. This accuracy and repeatibility make it possible to strip fiber ribbon without causing the fibers to spread (fan out) after stripping.
