Problem

Static charges building up on the fibre optic strand affects the coating process, which can result in: 

  • A non-uniform coating being applied to the fibre optic strand resulting in the entire spool having to be discarded due to light transmission quality issues.

Solution

Installation of a 929IPS or 924IPS Hyperion Bar, mounted parallel to the direction of the strand prior to going through the coating station, will remove the static charges on the strand improving the coating quality process.
