Fibre Strippers for Industrial and Medical Applications
09 Sep 2021
Fibre strippers are handheld for removal of the buffer or coating from a fibre. In the process of stripping fibres it is essential not to damage the fibre cladding and these strippers are ideally suited. The 125µm version is highly precise and primarily used for telecom fibres. Other versions in the range are used for large-core fibres in industrial applications.
Stripper housings are marked with a specification reference along with intended fibre size. In respect of the latter the first number designation stands for the diameter of the closed blades. This means that the diameter of the fibre cladding must be smaller than this diameter. The second number stands for the diameter of the front entry hole, the buffer diameter must be smaller than this diameter.
In addition to industrial strippers there are versions for the medical market called Medistrip. These are steam-sterilisable allowing for repeated use under sterile conditions.
LASER COMPONENTS offers a standard range and other fibre sizes on request.
