NOVA Optical Polishing System

Maximum flexibility for optical surface processing is now available with NOVA™. KrellTech has integrated the proven performance and features of its industry leading Scepter, Trig and FLex polishers into this configurable and cost-effective system.

NOVA™ supports a variety of polishing applications from connectors to PICs/waveguides, and bare fibers to custom components. NOVA™ is scalable from R&D projects to high volume production and features wireless tablet operation with a familiar and intuitive Android interface. 

Scepter™ Fiber Optic Polisher

Scepter™ is PC controlled for consistent and Telcordia compliant mass polishing of optical connectors and bare fiber. Technicians are prompted through each process step via the user friendly interface. Various polishing procedures are easily programmed for all connector types and surface finishes. Scepter™ polishing fixtures incorporate Krell’s unique independent suspension and optical alignment design for uniform polishing at each connector position, and maximum consumable film usage. In-line video inspection streamlines production and minimizes component handling.

Scepter X2 Dual Position Connector Polisher

Connector polishing capacity has been doubled with the Scepter X2 System. X2 has the same footprint as KrellTech's original Scepter connector polisher, but now supports two polishing fixtures. Up to 24 connectors, Mil-spec termini and ferrules can be processed simultaneously using KrellTech's patented Independent Suspension workholders. If two High-Capacity Workholders are used, 58 components can be processed during the same polishing session. As with all KrellTech polishers, optical performance and surface geometry exceed all industry standards including Telcordia and IEC.

SpecPro™ Connector Polisher

SpecPro™ is designed to yield singlemode performance for R&D and medical applications, low volume cable assembly production, and field environments. Up to four components can be simultaneously polished, including industry standard connectors, multifiber ferrules, MIL-spec termini, optical bundles, endoscopes and bare fibers. SpecPro is also ideal for repairing and retro-polishing damaged connectors. SpecPro™ incorporates Krell’s unique independent suspension feature for more uniform and consistent polishing at each connector position. Krell’s SpecVision™ Video Inspection System can also interface with SpecPro™ for in-line viewing of fiber finishes. In addition to its compact and portable packaging, SpecPro™ features both AC and battery operation.
