AutoStrip II
Automated Mid Span Window Stripping Unit

The AutoStrip II offered by DPM Photonics is designed for fast, chemical free window stripping of optical fibers. Utilizing patented "burst technology", it accomplishes the often difficult task of window stripping fibers with acrylate coating diameters up to 1,000μm. The AutoStrip II meets the need for variable window strip lengths at high strength and ultra cleanliness.

The proven Burst™ Technology method instantly vaporizes the fiber coating. The result is a clean, stripped fiber, at substantially higher strength than any mechanical stripping method. The fiber is free of debris at 400X magnification. The AutoStrip II is also equipped with a built-in, high force, fiber tensile tester, which can pull the fiber up to 355Kpsi (30N).

To ensure high quality, repeatability and high production yield, all critical processes and parameters such as stripping distance, burst temperature, burst speed, and strength test are controlled automatically by a built-in microprocessor. The AutoStrip II can be used as a stand-alone unit or integrated into different sub-systems.
