KrellTech releases new tool for photonic component polishing


The company’s new workholder is designed for MMC connectors and TMT ferrules, and aims to offer versatility and efficiency in the polishing process

KrellTech, a manufacturer of optical polishing and inspection equipment, has announced the latest update to its polishing technology – the MMC Connector and TMT Ferrule Workholder. The company says this new tool is engineered specifically for advanced MMC connectors and TMT ferrules, optimising the precision polishing process for these photonic components.

According to KrellTech, this fixture is optically aligned for superior geometry using the company’s patented calibration techniques. Workholders are configurable for polishing 1 to 24 ferrules simultaneously with tool-less loading to reduce setup times, streamlining the polishing process and allowing operators to concentrate on achieving the best quality.

Additionally, the company says that each polishing position integrates an independent suspension system for equalised pressure distribution ensuring uniform polishing, while compatibility with KrellTech's in-line video inspection systems means that quality control can be performed while the connectors are loaded in the workholder.

KrellTech adds that this new product, which is made in the USA, underscores the company’s commitment to leading the photonic industry.
