Liquid Clamp Cleaver (LCC)

The 3SAE Liquid Clamp Cleaver II LDF, (patent pending) is the most advanced large diameter fiber cleaver for circular and shaped fibers from 125um to 1000um. The Liquid Clamp Cleaver II LDF not only produces very flat cleaves for improved splice loss and beam quality, but now features angle cleaving for fibers 250 to 1000um in diameter at no extra cost. Angle cleaving is controlled by way of the on-board LCD and keypad interface which allows up to 30 degrees of rotation.

The primary cause of bad cleave angles is torsional strain in the fiber, induced by torque from conventional clamps. This new patent pending process features a completely torque-free clamping system, which uses a proprietary metal alloy ingot that melts at less than the boiling point of water. This is a lead-free, cadmium-free alloy ingot specially formulated to solidify tightly around the optical fiber when cooled, providing torque-free clamping even of non-round fibers such as Octagonal shape. A solid-state temperature control system rapidly liquifies and solidifies the alloy as needed. When the alloy ingot is depleted by use, it can be easily replaced. These unique alloy ingots are available exclusively from 3SAE Technologies.

In addition to the best cleave quality obtainable, this LD cleaver has an on-board LCD that provides continuous status updates and instructs the operator in the proper loading and cleaving sequence. The menu system enables the operator to easily create, modify and use up to ten cleaving programs, allowing efficient transitions between different fiber diameters.
