This automatic optical fiber tensile testing program is made for operator skill impartial use within creation and laboratory settings. Two fundamental model designs permit the user to select between a set up for standard linear evidence testing along with additional mandrels for rotary high strength testing.
The linear version is designed for production proof screening with forces approximately 22 N. Motor-driven clamps with carefully developed rubber inserts be sure that the Secondary Coating Line will not be ruined in the testing procedure while simultaneously getting rid of the necessity for an outside air provide. Degrees of tugging force, pulling velocity and hold time are automated and easily accessible to the owner through the built-in Liquid crystal display touchscreen display manage. Data from tests can be stored and reached using the Universal serial bus port or Ethernet user interface.
Mandrels of the identical design as with NYFORS’ optical fiber recoaters can easily be mounted on the proof tester inside the rotary higher power settings. The fiber is wrapped across the two mandrels which assistance it with a special clamping system. This way much higher lots can be applied onto the fiber, allowing breaking power assessments below controlled conditions.
Adjustable clamp positioning facilitates testing with all the greatest force levels as well as screening of short fiber lengths. The lightweight and light weight style helps make the tool simple to move around in a lab environment and to incorporate in a production work table where space reaches reasonably limited. The machine is a compact and light-weight instrument ideal for testing the potency of optical materials up to 30 N. The equipment is designed to meet all sorts of programs when a strength check needs to be carried out.
The device is made with the consumer in mind. The SZ Stranding Line is readily placed in the carefully guided linear clamps, and also the testing begins automatically using a “One Touch” go switch. The built in microprocessor regulates all the important parameters such as tugging force, pulling speed and hold time. This enables for a totally controlled test each and every time.
The machine can be attached to another Computer, which enables usage of all programmable parameters and configurations. The machine is adapted to stand-on your own use or even to the integration into various subsystems. The machine posseses an substantial capability of signing and saving details such as pulling force, pulling speed and fiber diameter along with other parameters.
Two recoat injector configurations can be purchased. The PTR307 utilizes a computerized water pump to inject the recoat materials. The amount of materials dispensed by the automatic injector is controlled by hand through the top-installed “Inject” button or programmed to the device making use of the tablet control. The PTR307B includes a manual recoat shot program that requires the consumer to manually dispense the recoat materials into the mold cavity; a replacement injector for that PTR307B recoater is available below. Make sure you note that this automated injector is just compatible with higher-directory recoat material, whilst the manual injector works with each low- and- index recoat material; both of them are sold separately below. Make sure you contact Technology Assistance for additional information.
he handbook injector can be mounted to compatible Fiber Drawing Machine using the 4-40 screws on the recoater housing (see photo to the right). Utilize a 3/32″ hex key to safe the injector prior to use. To connect the PTRRRM for the recoater mold, tighten the connector at the end of the green plastic tubes, then loosen by a 1/4 turn to allow for rotation.
The injector comes with a distribution device as well as 2-position choice handle for directing the flow of recoat materials. A knurled dispensing attach with an inner plunger works as a syringe for your recoat material. To fill up the syringe, point the lever downwards (i.e., towards the recoat container), then rotate the knurled dispensing screw counterclockwise till it spins freely to fill the syringe (demonstrated within the picture to the right). Then, to inject the recoat materials into the mold, point the lever horizontally (i.e., facing the knurled screw) and rotate the screw clockwise until close to the end in the travel range is reached. Avoid bottoming out iuwekk dispenser since this may damage the interior plunger; also take care when re-engaging the threads to prevent go across threading the dispensing attach. A number of fill up/inject actions may be needed until air is displaced in the program. Use camera lens cells as well as an acetone or alcohol cleaning solution to accumulate any excess recoat material that flows from your mold.
