3SAE Technologies Introduces the Taper Manufacturing Station (TMS) and Lens Forming Station (LFS): Manufacturing-oriented Systems Providing Unprecedented Accuracy and Process Control

February 2, 2014

The TMS and LFS are two production-ready fiber processing stations recently introduced by 3SAE Technologies.

The TMS is specifically designed for manufacturing optical fiber tapers, bundles and couplers using 3SAE's patent pending Thermally Stabilized Plasma™ technology. This technology provides industry leading performance and virtualy debris-free tapers due to the partial vacuum operating condition employed.

The LFS uses 3SAE's patented Ring of Fire® technology to process a fiber end into a ball term or lens of a user-specified diameter. The use of real-time image processing/measurements and programmable pass/fail criteria allow customers to reproducibly make ball terms within a few microns of the desired target.
