The extremely small and light weight MICROCOATER™ provides versatile recoating capability in situations where porta-
bility and flexibility is needed. Square silicone moulds are available in different sizes to cover a wide range of optical fibers and can easily be exchanged by the operator in a few seconds with no realignment of the system being required.
Short curing times are achieved through the highly efficient UV LED light source which enables fast processing of both standard high index recoating materials and more specialized low index compounds that are used in various high
The MICROCOATER™ is well suited for research and development operations and small scale pro¬duction where square shaped recoatings are accepted and the fiber type and dimension as well as the recoating material need to be changed frequently. It can also, thanks to the small size and built in re-chargeable battery, be used for recoating in a remote field environment such as an oil drilling platform, field service of fiber lasers and other fiber devices, and in other situations where a high degree of portability is required. The curing time is programmable. The MICROCOATER™ has a simple two button control and a clean and robust design.
