Fiber Cleaver-CAC400 Fiber Cleaver-CAC400A


Fiber Cleaver with Rotary Stage for Angled Cleaves

Automated Fiber Cleaver for Ø60 μm to Ø600 μm Fiber Cladding
Accepts SM, MM, PM, Photonic Crystal Fiber, Capillary Tubes, and Soft Glass Fiber
Flat or Angled Cleaves


Flat (0°) or Angled Cleaves (up to 15°) of Ø60 μm to Ø600 μm Cladding Fiber
Programs for Cleaving Standard or Specialty Fiber:
  • Single Mode (SM), Multimode (MM), and Polarization-Maintaining (PM) Fiber
  • Photonic Crystal Fiber (PCF)*
  • Soft Glass Fiber
  • Capillary Tubes
  • Parameters for Cleaving Fluoride Fiber are Available; Contact Tech Support for Details

* It may not be possible to create clean angle cleaves in specialty fibers with large "air-fill" fractions due to the material properties of the fiber.

Fiber Clips for Loading Fiber into the Cleaver (Required and Sold Separately)
  • Accepts Fiber with Ø67 μm to Ø1200 μm Buffer
V-Groove Inserts Hold Discarded Fiber End (Required and Sold Separately)
  • Accepts Fiber with Ø40 μm to Ø600 μm Cladding
Mirror-Quality End-Face Finishes Critical for High-Performance Splicing
Location-Specific Power Cord Included

(a) These cleavers are calibrated using standard weights that are hung off of a pulley, so the tension settings are programmed into the web interface in grams. This max tension corresponds to 2.2 kg.

(b) Distance from the end of the fiber clip to the cleave blade. This spacing is dependent on the Fiber Load Position parameter in the software.

(c) Minimum amount of fiber that should be present after the cleave blade.
