Product Description

The ReCoater 2 is used to restore the protective coating on acrylate coated
optical fibers in high strength applications. Molds are available in different sizes to cover a range of coating diameters and can easily be exchanged by the operator with no realignment required. Custom molds are available upon request.

With standard molds the recoated segment of the fiber is round with a diameter that perfectly and uniformly matches that of the original fiber coating, but the operator can
also choose to perform recoatings with a cross section slightly smaller than the original
fiber coating (undersize), or recoatings with a larger diameter that overlaps the original
fiber coating at each end of the recoat area (overcoating). This makes the system easy to set up and optimize for such different applications as undersea optical fiber cable assembly and fiber laser manufacturing.
