This automatic optical fiber tensile testing system is designed for operator skill impartial use within production and laboratory settings. Two basic design configurations allow the user to choose between a set up for regular linear proof testing along with additional mandrels for rotary higher strength testing.
The linear version is ideal for production proof testing with forces up to 22 N. Motor-driven clamps with carefully developed rubberized inserts ensure that the Sheathing Line is not damaged within the screening process while concurrently eliminating the necessity for an external air provide. Degrees of pulling force, tugging velocity and hold time are programmable and easily available to the operator from the built-in Liquid crystal display touch screen manage. Information from tests can be saved and accessed through the Universal serial bus port or Ethernet user interface.
Mandrels of the same style as in NYFORS’ optical fiber recoaters can easily be attached to the proof tester within the rotary high strength configuration. The fiber is covered around the two mandrels which support it having a special clamping system. This way greater lots can be used to the fiber, allowing breaking up strength assessments under controlled circumstances.
Adjustable clamp positioning facilitates testing with the greatest force levels as well as testing of brief fiber measures. The lightweight and light weight style definitely makes the instrument simple to move around inside a laboratory environment and to integrate in a creation work table in which space is at reasonably limited. The machine is actually a lightweight and light-weight tool ideal for screening the strength of optical fibers as much as 30 N. The machine is created to meet all sorts of programs in which a strength check needs to be performed.
The machine is designed with the user in mind. The fiber is definitely put into the carefully guided linear clamps, as well as the testing begins automatically using a “One Touch” go switch. The built-in microprocessor controls all of the important parameters such as pulling force, tugging speed and hold time. This permits for a completely managed test every time.
The machine can be connected to an external Computer, which enables use of all programmable parameters and configurations. The machine is adapted to stand-on your own use or the incorporation into various subsystems. The machine posseses an substantial capability of logging and conserving information like pulling force, tugging speed and Secondary Coating Line as well as other guidelines.
Two recoat injector configurations are available. The PTR307 uses a computerized pump to inject the recoat material. The volume of material dispensed from the automatic injector is controlled by hand using the top-mounted “Inject” button or programmed to the machine making use of the tablet control. The PTR307B includes a manual recoat injection system that needs an individual to manually distribute the recoat materials in to the mold cavity; another one injector for the PTR307B recoater is available below. Please note that the automated injector is only suitable for higher-index recoat material, as the manual injector works with both reduced- and high- index recoat material; both of them are sold individually listed below. Make sure you contact Tech Assistance for more information.
he manual injector can be mounted to Yarn Binder via the 4-40 screws around the recoater housing (see picture towards the right). Utilize a 3/32″ hex key to safe the injector just before use. To get in touch the PTRRRM for the recoater mold, tighten the connector at the end of the green plastic material tubes, then release by way of a 1/4 choose allow for rotation.
The injector is equipped with a distribution device as well as 2-place selection handle for directing the stream of recoat material. A knurled dispensing screw with the internal plunger works as a syringe for your recoat materials. To fill the syringe, point the handle downwards (i.e., towards the recoat bottle), then spin the knurled dispensing attach counterclockwise till it spins easily to fill the syringe (shown within the picture for the right). Then, to inject the recoat material to the mold, point the lever horizontally (i.e., facing the knurled attach) and rotate the screw clockwise till near the finish of the travel range is achieved. Avoid bottoming the dispenser as this kqkbws damage the inner plunger; also be mindful when re-interesting the threads to prevent go across threading the dispensing screw. A number of fill up/inject steps may be required until air is displaced in the system. Use camera lens tissue and an acetone or alcohol cleaning solution to collect any excess recoat material that flows from your mold.
