Domaille Engineering Debuts OptiSaber™ Compact Laser Cleaver

Domaille Engineering, an innovative provider of fiber termination solutions for the optical fiber industry, will debut the OptiSaber™  compact laser cleaver at OFC in Los Angeles, CA, March 24-26, 2015. The OptiSaber™ is an affordable, compact clever for MT/MPO connectors including 12, 16, 24 and 32 fiber configurations.  Benefits of the laser cleaver include a very fast cycle time, elimination of cracking and chipping associated with mechanical cleaving, a reduction of polishing steps and abrasive film use.  These time and cost savings result in an ROI of less than one year. 

 “During the termination process, connectors must be cleaved before they can be polished” said Dean Krueger, VP of Business Development. “The OptiSaber™ is fast, reliable, compact and affordable.  When you consider virtually eliminating cracking and significantly reducing the polishing process costs, the ROI on this unit is very attractive.”

Tim Kanne, President of Domaille Engineering adds “With the addition of the OptiSaber™, Domaille continues to provide new solutions in our optical fiber termination product line.  Our global customer base is seeing increasing demand to lower their manufacturing costs and our product development team will continue to create innovative solutions to meet their needs.”
