SpecPro™ Connector Polisher

Feb. 24, 2021, 7:28 p.m.
Q
I like this machine but it appears to be for SC/UPC style connectors. Is there a fixture for this 4 fiber polisher designed for doing the SC/APC connectors? With an inspection process while it is still mounted in the fixture?
A
SpecPro is capable of polishing up to 4 connectors simultaneously. This includes SC/APC. We will generate a quotation for this workholder fixture.

FLex Waveguide Polisher

Q
Hello, We are interesting in a polisher but would like to run DI water while polishing. Is this OK to use water with these polishers?
A
Depending upon the particular application, an individual polishing step may be processed either dry or with water. Water tends to provide better surface finish when used on the final step. Just a couple light sprays of water on the film is sufficient.
