Soft-Strip® Thermal Single Fiber Stripping Tool

Soft-Strip® stripping tools from Micro-Electronics have integral heating elements which enable them to soften and strip such coatings and insulations as MYLENE, KAPTON, TEFLON, PVC and HYTREL. The Soft-Strip® system permits precise stripping of these tough coatings with less than 3 lbs. of peak pulling force for multi-fiber ribbon, and less than 1 lb. for single fiber. The result is no fiber damage and higher quality splices and connections.Units are available for optical fiber (180-1000µm) and all standard multi-fiber ribbons (encapsulated, bonded, ribbonized and flat fiber types).

Single Fiber Stripping

Soft-Strip® stripping tools from Micro Electronics strip buffered fiber up to 900µm quickly and easily. Try the convenient Fiber Stripping Kits containing standard handles with interchangeable cutter blade sets and fiber guides to strip most fiber sizes. Or if you prefer, purchase Soft-Strip® tools individually fitted for the fiber or jacket diameter you specify with cutter blade set and fiber guide already installed.

Thermal Tool Breakdown

A. Handle Assembly

Battery or AC adapter operated, 4 ft. wire leads are connected to either a 6-V battery or AC adapter.

B. Cutter Blade Set

Selected for each ribbon or fiber size. Opposing blades self align around fiber guide to assure concentric scoring scoring and precision-stripped , nick free fiber. Blades travel in a straight line to assure proper allignment. Color coded to match fiber guide lock.

C. Fiber Guide Lock

Holds fiber guide securely in position. Color-coded to match blade sets.

D. Stripping Force

This is applied longitudinally with the fiber. The chance of harmful drag of fiber against to blade is eliminated, even with operator inattention of fatigue.

E. Fiber Guide

Selected for each nominal diameter of unstripped fiber, wire, or ribbon. Wrong size will not fit, assuring that the fiber is properly stripped, and not nicked or damaged.

F. Strip Guide Length

Calibrated in 1/16″ for strip lengths to 3″ (1″ or 2″ is standard).

G. Heater Oven

Heats and softens material to be stripped. Activated when hands are closed. Accommodates 1″, 2″ or 3″ maximum strip length.

H. Spring Assembly

Keep handles apart. In later models, also ejects scrap from heater oven.
