NYFORS AutoStripper

The AutoStripper™ is designed for fast, chemical free window stripping of optical fibers, using heated air to accomplish the often difficult task of window stripping fibers with acrylate coating diameters up to 550 μm. The AutoStripper™ meets the need for variable and multiple window strip lengths at high strength and ultra cleanliness.

A controlled hot air flow instantly vaporizes the fiber coating. The result is a stripped fiber, perfectly cleaned with a substantially higher strength than any mechanical stripping method. The fiber is free of debris at 400x magnification.

The AutoStripper™ is equipped with a built-in, high force tensile strength tester, which can pull the fiber up to 20 N.

To ensure high quality, repeatability and high production yield, all critical processes and parameters such as stripping length, burst time and strength test are controlled by a built-in microprocessor.

The AutoStripper™ can be used as a stand-alone unit or offered for integratation into different subsystems.
