This automatic optical fiber tensile testing program is made for operator skill independent use within creation and laboratory settings. Two basic design configurations allow the consumer to pick between a set up for regular linear proof testing and with additional mandrels for rotary high power testing.
The linear version is ideal for production proof testing with causes approximately 22 N. Motorized clamps with very carefully designed rubberized inserts be sure that the Secondary Coating Line is not really damaged in the screening procedure whilst at the same time getting rid of the need for an external air provide. Degrees of tugging force, tugging speed and hold time are programmable and easily available to the owner from the built-in LCD touch screen manage. Data from assessments can be saved and reached via the Universal serial bus dock or Ethernet user interface.
Mandrels of the same style like NYFORS’ optical fiber recoaters can be installed on the evidence tester inside the rotary higher power settings. The fiber is wrapped across the two mandrels which assistance it having a special clamping system. In this way much higher lots can be applied to the fiber, allowing breaking up strength assessments below controlled conditions.
Changeable clamp positioning facilitates screening with all the greatest force amounts as well as screening of brief fiber lengths. The lightweight and light weight design helps make the tool easy to move around in a laboratory environment and also to integrate in a production work bench where space reaches reduced. The device is a compact and lightweight instrument ideal for screening the effectiveness of optical fibers approximately 30 N. The machine is created to fulfill all sorts of applications where a strength test needs to be carried out.
The device is made with the user in mind. The Sheathing Line is definitely put into the carefully guided linear clamps, as well as the screening starts automatically with a “One Touch” go button. The built in microprocessor regulates each of the important guidelines such as pulling force, pulling speed and hold time. This permits to get a completely managed test every time.
The machine can be linked to an external Computer, which allows access to all programmable guidelines and configurations. The equipment is tailored to face-alone use or the incorporation into various subsystems. The equipment comes with an extensive ability of logging and saving information like tugging force, pulling speed and fiber size and other guidelines.
Two recoat injector designs can be found. The PTR307 uses a computerized pump to inject the recoat materials. The amount of material dispensed through the automated injector is controlled by hand through the top-installed “Inject” button or programmed into the machine making use of the tablet control. The PTR307B features a manual recoat shot system that requires an individual to manually dispense the recoat materials to the mold cavity; a substitute injector for the PTR307B recoater can be obtained below. Make sure you note the automatic injector is just appropriate for higher-index recoat materials, whilst the handbook injector is compatible with both low- and- index recoat material; both of them are sold separately below. Make sure you contact Technology Assistance for additional information.
he manual injector can be installed to compatible Fiber Drawing Machine using the 4-40 screws on the recoater housing (see photo towards the right). Utilize a 3/32″ hex key to secure the injector prior to use. For connecting the PTRRRM towards the recoater mold, tighten up the connector at the end of the green plastic material tubes, then loosen with a 1/4 choose allow for rotation.
The injector comes with a distribution valve and two-place choice lever for directing the stream of recoat materials. A knurled dispensing screw with an inner plunger acts as a syringe for the recoat material. To fill up the syringe, point the handle downward (i.e., towards the recoat container), then spin the knurled dispensing screw counterclockwise till it rotates easily to fill up the syringe (shown inside the photo to the right). Then, to inject the recoat material into the mold, point the lever horizontally (i.e., dealing with the knurled screw) and spin the screw clockwise until close to the finish in the journey range is achieved. Avoid bottoming out iuwekk dispenser since this may damage the interior plunger; also be careful when re-engaging the threads in order to avoid go across threading the dispensing attach. Several fill/inject actions may be required until air is displaced within the program. Use lens tissue plus an acetone or alcohol cleaning solution to gather any extra recoat material that runs through the mold.
