Optical fiber stripper

Vytran introduces the SAS-400, an optical fiber stripper that uses hot sulfuric acid to remove the protective coating from a fiber while maintaining the fiber's intrinsic strength. The SAS-400 was recently featured at SPIE Photonics West 2012 and the associated BiOS exhibition in January.

SAS-400 is an automated system intended for use in sensing, medical, telecommunications, aerospace, and research applications. It can remove a variety of coating types, including acrylate and polyimide. SAS-400 can strip a fiber section up to 40 millimeters long. It can also be used to center strip a fiber, making it useful for fiber Bragg grating manufacture and for metalizing fiber sections.
