Automatic fusion splicer still provides ROI for customers

Automatic fusion splicer still provides ROI for customers
As the world’s first fully automatic fusion splicer, Fujikura Europe’s 70S provides ROI for customers and an increased productivity via reduced splice cycles. Not only is the 70S believed to be the most ergonomic, fastest and durable technology of its kind, but its longevity has proved it is 'built to last', meaning that customers could still be using the same 70S they purchase today more than ten years from now. It only requires four operational steps per splice and reduces splicing time to just six seconds.

Cycle times cut through faster feeds and speeds

Cycle times cut through faster feeds and speeds
Dicker Precision Components, at its East Sussex factory of subcontract machinists, has a Biglia twin-turret, twin-spindle CNC turning centre supplied by Whitehouse Machine Tools, which has streamlined the production of a family of aluminium switch cover assemblies. The savings are so great that the cycle time for producing one part of the assembly has been halved while the other part is produced in a little over one-third of the time.
