Single Fiber Benchtop Cleaver (Pre-Polish)

The fibersect is designed to cut all epoxied ferrules and connectors.  It improves throughput and first pass yield by eliminating manual steps and human variables.  The fibersect.single also minimizes polishing and provides a precise and reliable outcome. The end result is significant savings in production.


  • Optimized for cutting single and duplex connector ferrules including LC, LC-APC, LC Duplex, SC, SC-APC, SMA with <300 micron fibers and many others.

  • Cuts parallel to the ferrule face whether the face is at 0° (flat) or at 8° angle (APC).

  • Custom adapters are available •

  • Cut cycle time: ~1 sec •

  • Recommended cut length from ferrule face: 75 µm

  • • Adjustable cut length from ferrule face: 0-600 µm; 5 µm adjusting resolution

  • Maximum fiber protrusion from ferrule face before cutting: 10 mm •

  • Cut angle: <+/- 0.5° •

  • Adapter changeover time: <30 sec •

  • Warranty: One year •

  • Expected saw lifetime: > 700,000 cuts  when cutting LC or SC ferrules •

  • Power: 100-240 Vac, 50-60 Hz, 0.48 A; with rechargeable battery •

  • Battery capacity: >500 cuts when cutting LC or SC ferrules •

  • Dimensions: W x D x H / 3.75 x 5.25 x 3.50 in / 95 x 133 x 89 mm •

  • Weight: 2 lbs / 0.9 kg


  • Quickly produces a flat cut very close to the ferrule face, presenting the ideal surface to start polishing and markedly improve polished end face geometry.​

  • Improves throughput and first pass yield by eliminating manual steps and reducing human variables, thereby minimizing polishing, maximizing reliability and precision, and producing significant savings in production.

  • Simple, One-button operation provides exceptional versatility, portability, and ease of use.


  • Minimal Operator Training for easy labor management in a high turnover environment

  • "Good input, Good process output" - Consistent cut height produces even distribution of polishing pressure resulting in higher first pass yields that impact down stream processes. 

    • Better control of radius and apex during polishing

    • Reduction in scrap and rework (zero operator dependent)

    • Potential improvement in Geometry, Insertion Loss and Visual Inspection Yield

    • Reduction in Polishing time saves labor and increases throughput
