Fujikura Europe to Exhibit New ARC Fusion Splicers at ECOC 2010
Press release date: September 15, 2010
Revolutionary "ARCMasterTM" specialty fibre fusion splicer perfect for Factory, Manufacturing, R&D, and Laboratory Environments
Surrey, UK: Fujikura Europe Ltd. (www.fujikura.co.uk), the world leader in fusion splicing technology, today announced that it will be demonstrating the new FSM-100P ARCMaster fusion splicer at the ECOC 2010 event in Turin in September.
The new fibre optic fusion splicer was recently launched globally, in conjunction with the FSM-100M. Both new specialty fibre fusion splicers offer a host of innovative technologies to address the rapidly expanding splicing needs for factory, manufacturing, laboratory, and R&D applications. The technologically superior splicing machines incorporate multiple pending patents.
"The 100M and 100P series splicers further position Fujikura as the dominant player in the specialty splicer market and we are looking forward to exhibiting the 100P in Turin," said Stephen Rackstraw, European Business Development Manager at Fujikura Europe Ltd. "The ARCMaster series, so called because of the unique capabilities to control the plasma zone of the fusion ARC, is adaptable for a variety of specialty splicing needs, reliable, and consistent in performance, while providing a real value. We will be demonstrating how these capabilities will revolutionise the way users splice various types of specialty fibres: LDF, low contrast PM, holey / micro-structured, etc at ECOC."
Fujikura's new "ARCMaster" splicers are engineered with a robust set of features that offer customers technology and reliability not available elsewhere:
The need for Accurate, Reliable, and Consistent splicing is expanding to new applications beyond telecommunications. Today splicing is used for fibre lasers, sensors, medical applications, and research and development. These entirely new "ARCMaster" fusion splicers from Fujikura have been developed to provide the ultimate in performance and flexibility for a variety of customers and markets.
ECOC is the largest European optical communications event and ECOC 2010 will be taking place in Turin in September. The conference runs from 19-23 September, while the exhibition runs from 20-22 September. For more information visit www.ecocexhibition.com
Additional information can be found at Fujikura's new www.StateoftheARC.com website which will be the central repository of information for all of Fujikura's state of the art fusion splicer products. Stay tuned to www.StateoftheARC.com for forthcoming additions to the "ARCMaster" family of specialty fusion splicers where incremental capabilities, such as X-LDF splicing, will be revealed.
Fujikura is the world's leading manufacturer of fibre optic cables and equipment for installation, measurement, and testing. Fujikura incorporates "Tsunagu" technology making the Fujikura name synonymous with fibre optic fusion splicers. Visit www.fujikura.co.uk for more information.
