Vytran to Highlight Latest Optical Fiber Processing Equipment at OFC/NFOEC 2012

Morganville, New Jersey, - Vytran, an innovative supplier of optical fiber splicing and processing solutions, will show an array of high-performance optical fiber processing equipment, including a selection of its newest products, at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC) 2012 exposition. The OFC/NFOEC exposition will be held March 6-8, 2012, at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California.

"At OFC/NFOEC, Vytran will show fiber processing tools for use in telecom, fiber sensing, and other demanding application areas," said Jean-Michel Pelaprat, Vytran president and CEO. "And we'll highlight some of our newest products - the new, compact CAS-4100 optical fiber splicer, our multipurpose GPX-3600 glass processor, and our latest fiber stripper, the SAS-400. We encourage show attendees to come by our booth, see our product demos, ask questions, and discover how our expertise and product offering may advance their applications."

Vytran's full product lineup covers a range of single process tools and all-in-one workstations for fiber stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, recoating and testing. At its OFC/NFOEC booth, #1651, Vytran will demonstrate:

o The CAS-4100 optical fiber splicer - a new, compact, semi-automated, easy-to-use splicer ideal for use in manufacturing telecom fiber assemblies such as erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs) and dispersion compensation fiber (DCF) modules.

o The GPX-3600 glass processor - a new, versatile system designed to create splices, combiners, tapers, couplers, end caps and other fused components on optical fibers with diameters as large as 1.8 mm.

o The SAS-400 - a new hot acid stripper designed to remove the protective coating from a fiber while preserving the fiber's intrinsic strength. Vytran will demonstrate the system's intuitive graphical user interface.

Vytran will also show a number of its established products, including a PTR-200-ARL automated fiber recoater/proof tester and a PTR-200-PRL polyimide fiber recoater/proof tester, an LDC-400 large-diameter fiber cleaver, and an FFS-2000 all-in-one splicing workstation.

For added convenience, attendees can schedule appointments to discuss their unique fiber processing needs by contacting Jim Stathis, Vytran sales manager, at jstathis@vytran.com or by emailing sales@vytran.com.
