Product Description

This compact and easy-to-use recoater is extremely portable and allows for quick and easy recoating of optical fibers. NYFORS silicone mold technology provides extreme flexibility for a variety of recoating needs.

With the standard molds the recoated part of the fiber is round with a cross section that
perfectly and uniformly matches that of the original fiber coating, but molds can also be
selected for both over-coating and undersize recoating of optical fibers. These features
make the MiniCoater 2 well suited for research and development operations and small
scale production where the fiber type and dimensions need to be changed frequently.
The cordless battery operation enables easy movement from lab-to-lab, or from one
production area to another. Custom molds are also available.

Injection of the recoating compound is performed manually. While this does require
a manual user operation, it also ensures flexibility because the user can immediately
switch from one type of recoating compound to another (e.g. from a high-index
recoating material to a low-index material) without any need to flush out a recoater
reservoir and injection pumping system. This, in addition to the rapidly exchangeable
mold sizes and shapes (for uniform diameter and undersize recoating as well as
overcoating), ensures the flexibility and adaptability of the MiniCoater 2.
Short curing times are achieved through a highly efficient UV LED array, which also
has the ability to cure low-index recoating compounds used in fiber laser manufacturing.

In addition, the MiniCoater 2 is compatible with recoating materials that can withstand
200°C high temperature applications such as down-hole applications in oil and
gas wells.
