The Affinity AFS1000 Automated Fusion Splicing System is designed to meet the needs
of today's optical manufacturers. The AFS1000 system is the fastest automated fusion
splicer on the market today. It strips, cleans, cleaves, splices, and proof-tests
optical fibers - completing a splice every 40 seconds. Through the combination of
proven Fujikura splicing components and technology, and automation expertise from
NEXT Fiber Systems, the AFS1000 provides a cost-effective solution for optical
manufacturers looking to boost productivity, improve quality, reduce rework, and
increase production flexibility.
The AFS1000 uses a LabVIEWTM based operating software that enables processing of
multiple fiber types simultaneously. Its moving pallet design accommodates various
opto-electronic module sizes using minimal fiber length. The system utilizes a fiber
handling pallet that interfaces with key functional stations operating in a parallel
mode. These stations include thermal stripping, high-efficiency cleaning, precision
cleaving and fiber splicing.
