Fusion splicing is a necessary process when working with optical fiber, and this video will teach you how to create a strong splice. Join us as we take you step by step through the process and learn:

  • What is fusion splicing?
  • Cleanliness to prevent fiber contamination
  • Properly stripping fiber coating
  • Using a fiber cleaver
  • How to use the splicer and its clamps
