The Splice-on-Connector has field termination with handheld splicer, with no epoxy/polishing required and a high grade factory pre-polished ferrule.

Other special solutions include fibre assemblies with glass and metal soldering, fibre end shaping and coatings e.g. for metallisation, anti-reflective etc.  

The termination equipment includes precision cleavers, epoxy curing ovens, polishing machines, accessories and consumables and fusion splicers and splice protection sleeves
