Bare Fiber Polishing and Inspection

The Cila 2.0 Bare Fiber Polishing and Inspection System can efficiently grip, align, position, and polish bare fibers to a multitude of exotic geometries. Built in inspection systems (profile and in-line brightfield) provide high resolution imaging and referencing, making it an effective tool for applications when demanding tolerances for polish angles, radial alignment (PM fibers)and precise fiber protrusion lengths are required.
