Sumitomo Electric Lightwave introduces industry’s first mass fiber automatic blade rotation cleavers for FTTx termination efficiency

Sumitomo Electric Lightwave (, a leader in fiber optic product design and manufacturing, introduces the FC-6RM-C fiber cleaver, the industry’s first and only automatic blade rotation cleaver for high precision cleaves of 1 to 12 fibers for use in fusion splicing, field termination, and other precision applications. For single fiber applications, the company has launched the FC-6RS automatic blade rotation cleaver. Both units address the market need for a more precise fiber cleaver that eliminates the time consuming and error prone process of height and blade rotation adjustments, thereby increasing ease of use, precision, and the cleaver’s maximum product life.
