Fiber Optic Polishing Machines


The APM-HDC-5320 polishing machine is designed to address the need to efficiently polish a large volume of fiber optical connectors while maintaining a consistently high level of quality.Ā 

Superior & Accurate Polishing Performance

Multifiber applications are made easier with the APM-HDC-5320. Polishing pressures of up to 20 pounds are used to polish a large volume of connectors efficiently while maintaining high levels of quality.

The APM-HDC-5320 has programmable ramp rates for pressure and speed. In order to ensure a superior and accurate final result, the required pressure is automatically recalculated to ensure that the individual connector force remains constant.
