Vytran Adds to Family of Optical Fiber Glass Processors

Vytran, a leading supplier of innovative optical fiber splicing and processing solutions, has enhanced its GPX-3000 Series family of optical fiber glass processors with the new GPX-3800 and GPX-3850.

These new models offer all fiber processing capabilities typical of Vytran’s GPX-3000 systems, with the added functionality of an on-board fiber cleaver, real-time process viewing, and advanced fiber measurement.“Vytran’s GPX-3800 and GPX-3850 inherit the full capabilities of our flagship GPX-3000 family of glass processors,” said Ed Connor, Vytran CEO. “But we’ve enhanced the new models to give users even more control and monitoring of their glass processing, ensuring the highest quality fiber-based component production possible.This new functionality is ideal for making and cleaving fused-fiber pump and signal combiners for fiber lasers, precision cleaving GRIN lenses, and many other applications.”

Vytran’s GPX-3000 Series glass processors use proprietary filament fusion technology to create high-performance splices and fiber-based fused components such as combiners, tapers, mode converters, couplers and end caps. They can also be used for processes such as thermal core expansion and mode field adapting. New features on the GPX-3800 and GPX-3850 include:

- A built-in precision cleaver utilizing proven tension and scribe technology. The integrated cleaver reduces risks associated with fiber handling, provides accurate cleave location and superior cleave angle, and allows end surface inspection using the GPX unit’s imaging capabilities.

- A high-resolution camera and associated software. The new “hot image” viewing capability allows the user to visually monitor glass processing in real time.

- Advanced fiber measurement software. This new software works with the GPX system’s fiber end-view imaging capability to measure characteristics such as fiber circularity, fiber centroid and core eccentricity.

GPX-3000 Series glass processors are used for research, development and manufacturing in markets ranging from fiber laser and sensing to medical and aerospace. Vytran offers models to accommodate fiber diameters as small as 125 microns up to 2 mm. The new GPX-3800 processes fibers with diameters as large as 1.25 mm; GPX-3850 processes up to 2 mm. In-situ cleaving on both the GPX-3800 and GPX-3850 is for fiber diameters up to 400 microns.
