Featuring tension-and-scribe cleaving technology, Models CAC-400 and CAC-400-A enable automated production of fiber lasers, fiber-based medical and sensing devices, and other fiber components. CAC-400 produces flat cleaves with quality end-face finishes on standard and specialty fibers from 60–600 microns in diameter, while CAC-400-A creates both flat and angled cleaves. Both feature Precision Cleave™ technology for optimal cleave positioning, cleave consistency, and mirror-like facet quality. Read More
