This automated optical fiber tensile testing program is made for operator skill independent use in production and lab settings. Two basic design designs allow the user to select between a set up for regular linear proof testing with additional mandrels for rotary high strength testing.
The linear version is designed for creation evidence screening with causes up to 22 N. Motor-driven clamps with very carefully designed rubber inserts be sure that the Fiber Drawing Machine is not ruined in the testing process whilst at the same time getting rid of the requirement for an outside air supply. Amounts of pulling force, tugging velocity and hold time are programmable and conveniently offered to the operator with the built in Liquid crystal display touch-screen control. Information from assessments can be saved and accessed using the USB port or Ethernet user interface.
Mandrels of the same design as in NYFORS’ optical fiber recoaters can easily be mounted on the proof tester inside the rotary higher strength settings. The fiber is covered round the two mandrels which assistance it having a unique clamping mechanism. This way much higher lots can be employed onto the fiber, enabling breaking power assessments below controlled circumstances.
Changeable clamp positioning facilitates testing with all the greatest force amounts as well as testing of brief fiber measures. The lightweight and light bodyweight design helps make the instrument simple to move around in a lab environment and to incorporate in a production work table in which space reaches reduced. The machine is a lightweight and light-weight tool ideal for testing the potency of optical materials as much as 30 N. The device is developed to fulfill all kinds of applications in which a strength test must be performed.
The equipment is designed with the consumer in mind. The Optical Fiber Proof-Testing Machine is definitely positioned in the guided linear clamps, and the screening begins automatically using a “One Touch” go button. The built in microprocessor controls each of the important guidelines like tugging force, pulling speed and hold time. This permits to get a totally controlled test each and every time.
The machine can be connected to an external Computer, which enables use of all automated guidelines and settings. The machine is tailored to stand-alone use or to the incorporation into different subsystems. The machine has an extensive capability of signing and conserving information such as tugging force, pulling velocity and fiber size and other parameters.
Two recoat injector designs are available. The PTR307 uses a computerized pump to inject the recoat materials. The quantity of material dispensed by the automated injector is controlled by hand via the top-installed “Inject” switch or programmed into the device using the tablet control. The PTR307B features a handbook recoat shot program that will require the consumer to personally distribute the recoat materials in to the mold cavity; another one injector for that PTR307B recoater is available below. Please note that this automatic injector is just suitable for higher-directory recoat material, while the manual injector is compatible with each low- and- directory recoat materials; both of them are marketed individually below. Make sure you contact Tech Assistance for more information.
he manual 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 before use. For connecting the PTRRRM towards the recoater mold, tighten up the connector at the conclusion of the eco-friendly plastic material tubing, then release with a 1/4 turn to permit rotation.
The injector comes with a distribution valve and two-place choice lever for directing the flow of recoat materials. A knurled dispensing screw having an internal plunger acts as a syringe for your recoat material. To fill the syringe, point the handle downward (i.e., toward the recoat bottle), then spin the knurled dispensing attach counterclockwise till it spins freely to fill the syringe (shown in the picture towards the right). Then, to inject the recoat materials in to the mold, point the handle horizontally (i.e., facing the knurled attach) and spin the attach clockwise until nearby the finish from the travel range is achieved. Steer clear of bottoming out iuwekk dispenser because this may damage the internal plunger; also take care when re-engaging the threads to prevent cross threading the dispensing attach. Several fill up/inject actions may be needed until air is displaced within the program. Use camera lens cells as well as an acetone or alcoholic beverages cleansing solution to gather any excess recoat material that flows from your mold.
