15 January 1986 Mass Production Of Fused Couplers And Coupler Based Devices
Author Affiliations +
An automatable mass production system capable of manufacturing low loss (less than 0.1 dB) fused single mode fiber optic couplers at a rate in excess of 30,000 pieces per work station year has been developed. The design requirements and limitations observed in the initial development of a manual version of this system are discussed. Integration of users optical and mechanical requirements, optical fiber design, and coupler manufacturing tooling is an important goal in the effort to reduce costs to large volume users.
