Product information "LDS 2.5 Large Diameter Splicing System"

Multipurpose Fiber Splicing & Processing System; Fiber Diameter 125-2,500 µm; “Ring of Fire” Heat Source for Even Heating; Alignment of up to 10 Axes; Pitch & Yaw Axes Alignment to 0.01°

The LDS 2.5 Large Diameter Splicing System is the latest version of 3SAE Technologies’ multipurpose fiber splicing and processing system for fiber diameters ranging from 125 to 2,500 µm.

The LDS 2.5 is utilizing 3SAE Technologies’ 30 years of fiber splicing and processing experience and it is specifically designed with flexibility in mind. The LDS 2.5 is a modular system which can be adapted and customized for production of different fused optical components such as high-power fiber combiners, mode field adapters, fiber probes, end cap splicing and splicing dissimilar sized standard or exotic fiber combinations.

Various System Upgrade Packages are available: Tapering Package, Bundling Convenience Package (Tapering Package Required), Polarization Maintaining (PM) Splicing Package, and Integrated Piezo LDF Cleaving System Package. The LDS 2.5 provides capabilities that overcome the hurdles of current fiber component fabrication processes to meet the most demanding requirements.

Designed for reproducibility, precision, and user-friendly operation, the LDS 2.5 provides the user a manufacturing approach to optical component product development. Its extreme flexibility enables customers to realize current and future glass processing and fusion splicing possibilities.

Precision mechanical design, high-contrast optics and absolute control of positional and angular fiber alignment sets the LDS 2.5 apart from competing technologies.

A sophisticated image processing software package allows the user to view, in real time, the progress of a splice or taper. The system handles fiber diameters from 125 µm to 2.5 mm, as well as optics such as prisms, end caps, and lenses, with alignment and fusion of unsurpassed quality.

3SAE Technologies has the ability to offer customized LDS 2.5 systems to meet very specific customer requirements. Please get in touch with the AMS Technologies fiber processing equipment experts to discuss your specific application.
