Products


Cable Cutters are for cutting through fibre optic cable. Both models are pliers style and have hardened blades.
AFL’s range of crimpers ensures your crimps meet these requirements without crushing the fibre or the connector body.
Outer Sheath Strippers are for removing a cable’s protective outer sheath, allowing you to expose the internal sub-jacketed fibres or tubing.
The Armoured Cable Slitter helps you break out fibre cables which are housed in corrugated copper, steel or aluminium armour sheaths.
The FOD-2000 drop cable slitter is designed for 250µm flat drop cable and puts a slit on both sides of the jacket allowing easy access to the fibre or strength member.
As part of AFL’s extensive product support we offer you a large selection of replacement parts for our range of tooling.
The Fujikura range of Thermal/Hot Jacket Strippers enable you to strip single or multiple fibres (ribbon) through heating. This softens the fibre coating and allows it to be removed easily and smoothly.
Available in two models, 250µm or 250µm/900µm/2mm, AFL's ergonomic design prevents nicks or scratches on the optical fibre.
Kevlar Cutters are designed to cut and trim the Kevlar (aramid yarn) found in most fibre optic cables.
Polishing Pads and Plates are used to provide a backing on which a lapping or polishing film sits during the process of hand polishing.
Tweezers allow you to pick up and deposit fibre off-cuts from hard to reach places. They are essential for optimal fibre handling safety and complement any fibre optic tool kit.
Fibre Scribes allow you to remove the excess fibre which protrudes from a connector ferrule that has just been terminated via anaerobic, epoxy or hot melt methods.
Tube Slitters/Cutters are used for fibre optic cables that have internal tubes which house the fibre.
