Optical Fiber Cleaver: Types and Applications

Date: 2023-07-03 17:35:00

 An optical fiber cleaver is used to cut the fiber for fusion splicing and prepare fiber for pre-polished connectors to make a good end face. It is essential in the fiber splicing process and works together with the fusion splicer to meet the end needs. This article will discuss optical fiber cleavers and their types and applications.
What is Optical Fiber Cleaver?
An optical fiber cleaver is a tool that holds the fiber under low tension, scores the surface at the proper location, then applies greater tension until the fiber breaks. It is used for cutting fibers.
Types of Optical Fiber Cleavers

1. Scribe Optical Fiber Cleaver
Scribe optical fiber cleaver is usually shaped like a ballpoint pen with diamond-tipped wedges. It has a carbide or diamond sharp tip to scratch the fiber manually then the user pulls the fiber to break it. Scribe optical fiber cleaver removes the excess fibers from the end of a connector before polishing.
2. Handheld Pocket Optical Fiber Cleaver
The handheld pocket also called the score and snap optical fiber cleaver is designed for cleaving fiber in the field quickly and easily. It is used in multi-mode applications for premise and campus installations where precise cleaves are not required. The handheld pocket optical fiber cleaver has a ceramic blade and lightweight size.
3. Precision Optical Fiber Cleaver
A precision optical fiber cleaver uses a diamond or tungsten wheel/blade to provide the nick in the fiber. Tension is then applied to the fiber to create the cleaved end face.  It can produce repeatable results through thousands of cleaves by rotating the wheel/blade accordingly. Precision optical fiber cleaver can cut multiple fibers with increasing speed, efficiency, and accuracy. It can give a precise cut at a cleave angle of 90 degrees to the fiber end.
Optical fiber cleaver is used in fusion splice, optical network construction, telecommunications networks, LAN, WAN, metro networks, CATV networks, FTTH projects, etc.
An optical fiber cleaver is used in fusion splicing and FTTH projects. It is lightweight, durable, easy to use, has high reliability, high stability, and has good cleaving precision performance.Sun Telecom specializes in providing one-stop total fiber optic solutions for all fiber optic application industries worldwide.
