With rapid advancements in technology, optical fiber communication has also become very popular with a wide range of useful applications. These cables are similar to electric cables, but they contain many optical fibers used to carry light. Different types of optical fiber cables are being manufactured based on the environment in which they will be implemented.
Role of Secondary Coating Line in the Production Process:
Secondary Coating Lines are equipped with modern technology and are widely used to produce several kinds of tubes. The secondary coating line is used not only in production but also in the process of secondary coating of the optical fiber with high efficiency. This equipment is based on multi-pass technology and consists of a pay-off of around 12 optical fibers.
The secondary coating of the fiber is essential to complete the production process as it extrudes the loose tubes, if any, and promotes the overall quality and efficiency of the tube. The maximum working speed of the secondary coating line is 600 meters per minute and consists of an electrical control system with PLC and touchscreen. It is a piece of highly reliable equipment that smoothens the production process.
Segregating different types of optical fiber cables:
Fiber optic cables are widely being used to transmit data and have a wide range of applications in computer networking, internet, mechanics, telephone, etc. For each of these applications, different kinds of optical fiber cables are used. A particular type of optical fiber cable is identified based on color codes. Therefore, every kind of optical fiber is assigned a particular color, which acts as an identifier. This is done to easily identify the different kinds of fibers and use them accordingly.
To segregate the different fibers, coloring has become an important mechanism. To achieve this, technicians use a fiber coloring machine to get the respective colors on the optical fiber surface.
Working of the fiber coloring machine:
The fiber coloring machine is a useful piece of equipment that is used to color the fiber optic cables for easy identification. In addition to coloring, this equipment is also used in rewinding the cables to increase productivity.
This machine is equipped with advanced international technology that increases efficiency and is easy to operate. This reliable piece of equipment facilitates accuracy as the programmable controller is well-grounded and reliable. This machine has all the modern features and characteristics that make the device easier to control.
The automatic shut-down and alarm feature is a notable one as the device automatically turns off the task, thus saving energy and preventing overuse. This machine is also equipped with photoelectric sensors that help carry out an equal amount of take-up without any repetitions. Various factors necessary to monitor while coloring and rewinding, like temperature, pressure, power supply, etc., can be tracked easily and customized on the sensor display. The stable control system of the entire electrical machine is provided by a German Siemens company that offers good-quality service and reliability.
