Radian™ Bare Fiber Polisher

Krell’s Radian™ System provides the ability to polish optical fibers at user-selectable and variable angles. Interchangeable adapters accommodate fibers of various diameters and material types. Bare fiber, glass rod or optical bundle polishing is possible with high speed processing. The rotary stage can be interchanged with a variety workholders for polishing fiber optic connectors. Radian™ is ideal for laboratory, R&D and low volume manufacturing applications.

Expand Radian’s™ versatility beyond bare fiber processing.  Adapters are available for polishing a variety of industry standard and custom connector/ferrule types, as well as rods/lenses.  Polish components to flat, UPC and angled geometries.
