The fibersect.single™ quickly cuts off the epoxy and fibres protruding from the face of connector ferrules during the installation process. In less than a second, it produces a flat cut close to the ferrule face, creating the ideal surface for polishing. Throughput is improved by eliminating manual steps such as hand cleaving, de-nubbing and epoxy removal. The fibersect.single is optimized for cutting Simplex and Duplex epoxied connector ferrules. With a simple one button operation, small footprint, and battery power, the fibersect.single provides exceptional versatility, portability, and ease of use in the production environment.
