Polishing Machine APM-HDC-5400
The Domaille APM-HDC-5400 is the most accurate, technologically advanced polishing machine in the market today. Like all Domaille brand machines, designed with a rigid fixture system that is far superior to floating fixture systems. Specially designed for complex multifibre applications like MPO or MTP, this polisher allows you to program your polishing processes through an easy-to-use PC-based Windows-like full-colour touch screen panel. Once programmed, the panel displays your settings for speed, time, and pressure, and prompts the operator for the film, pad, and lubricant needed for each step of the process.
The APM-HDC-5400 also has fully programmable pressure and speed ramp rates for slow starting and stopping the polishing process. Programmable film change counters and a maintenance section are incorporated for alerting operators when to change film or provide service to the machine. If the number of connectors loaded into the polishing fixture is less than the default that has been programmed, the automatic pressure adjustment feature allows the operator to enter the actual number of connectors loaded. The required pressure is then automatically recalculated to ensure that the individual connector force remains constant regardless of the number of connectors assumed in the process definition.
The APM-HDC-5400 continues to provide the capability to copy and store processes to a USB. The USB can be used to back-up your defined processes and to copy processes from one machine to another. This not only saves process setup time for each machine, but also ensures consistent process settings.
