GPST-1000 Gliding-Plasma Based Fiber Coating Stripper

Universal Fiber Stripper

Based on our Gliding-Plasma Stripping Technology, Lightel has developed the GPST-1000 stripper for quick and easy optical fiber coating stripping. The GPST-1000 allows operators to effortlessly strip almost all types of fiber coatings, including the most stubborn ones such as carbon or polyimide.

This unit supports both end-stripping and window-stripping with adjustable stripping lengths. The strip is clean with sharp edges and its non-contact process eliminates the risks associated with chemical stripping and blade-based mechanical systems.
