This automatic optical fiber tensile testing system is designed for operator skill impartial use within production and lab settings. Two basic design configurations enable the user to select between a set up for standard linear proof testing and with extra mandrels for rotary high strength testing.
The linear edition is ideal for creation proof testing with forces as much as 22 N. Motor-driven clamps with very carefully designed rubberized inserts be sure that the Optical Fiber Ribbon Machine will not be ruined within the testing procedure while at the same time eliminating the need for an outside air provide. Degrees of tugging force, tugging velocity and hold time are automated and easily accessible to the operator with the built in LCD touch-screen control. Information from tests can be stored and reached via the Universal serial bus port or Ethernet user interface.
Mandrels of the same design like NYFORS’ optical fiber recoaters can easily be installed on the proof tester within the rotary higher strength configuration. The fiber is wrapped around the two mandrels which support it using a unique clamping system. In this way much higher lots can be employed onto the fiber, enabling breaking up strength tests below managed conditions.
Adjustable clamp placement facilitates testing with the highest force levels as well as testing of short fiber measures. The compact and light weight style helps make the instrument easy to maneuver inside a lab environment and also to incorporate inside a creation work bench in which space is at a premium. The machine is actually a compact and light-weight instrument suitable for screening the potency of optical fibers up to 30 N. The machine is developed to fulfill all kinds of programs in which a strength check needs to be carried out.
The machine is made using the user in mind. The fiber is easily placed in the guided linear clamps, and also the screening begins instantly having a “One Touch” go switch. The built in microprocessor regulates all the essential guidelines like tugging force, pulling speed and hold time. This allows for any completely managed test each and every time.
The machine can be attached to another PC, which enables use of all automated parameters and configurations. The machine is tailored to face-on your own use or the incorporation into different subsystems. The machine comes with an extensive ability of logging and saving details including tugging force, tugging speed and Yarn Binder and other guidelines.
Two recoat injector designs can be found. The PTR307 uses a computerized pump to inject the recoat material. The amount of materials dispensed by the automated injector is controlled by hand through the top-installed “Inject” button or programmed into the machine using the tablet control. The PTR307B features a handbook recoat shot system that requires the consumer to manually distribute the recoat materials to the mold cavity; a substitute injector for that PTR307B recoater is available below. Please note that this automated injector is only compatible with higher-index recoat material, while the manual injector is compatible with each reduced- and- directory recoat materials; both are marketed separately listed below. Please contact Technology Support for more information.
he manual injector can be mounted to Sheathing Line using the 4-40 anchoring screws around the recoater housing (see photo to the right). Use a 3/32″ hex key to secure the injector before use. To get in touch the PTRRRM towards the recoater mold, tighten up the connector after the eco-friendly plastic material tubes, then loosen by way of a 1/4 turn to permit rotation.
The injector comes with a syndication device and 2-position selection handle for directing the stream of recoat material. A knurled dispensing screw with the internal plunger behaves as a syringe for the recoat material. To fill the syringe, point the lever downward (i.e., toward the recoat bottle), then rotate the knurled dispensing screw counterclockwise till it rotates freely to fill the syringe (shown inside the photo to the right). Then, to inject the recoat material into the mold, point the handle horizontally (i.e., dealing with the knurled screw) and rotate the attach clockwise until near the end in the travel range is reached. Steer clear of bottoming out your dispenser because this kqkbws damage the internal plunger; also take care when re-engaging the threads to avoid cross threading the dispensing attach. Several fill up/inject actions may be needed until air is displaced in the system. Use camera lens tissue plus an acetone or alcohol cleaning solution to accumulate any extra recoat material that flows from your mold.
