AFL Lowers Pricing on Fujikura 12S Fusion Splicer

Spartanburg, SC – WEBWIRE

As a direct result of new manufacturing and sourcing efficiencies, AFL is proud to offer more attractive pricing on the Fujikura 12S. Recognized as the smallest and lightest fusion splicer in the world, the Fujikura 12S is now available to customers starting at less than $3,000.

“As the pioneer and world leader in fusion splicing technology, Fujikura splicers are well-known for superior quality and reliability,” commented Greg Pickeral, product manager for AFL’s fusion splicing systems. “This announcement is exciting because it makes the proven quality of Fujikura available to a wider audience. Something that may not have been attainable in the past, is now.”

The Fujikura 12S weighs less than 2 pounds with a 6” x 5” footprint. The ruggedized chassis features shock, dust and moisture protection while the two-camera observation system provides accurate fiber alignment and loss estimation calculations. The transit case also serves as a workstation when needed. Software updates are accomplished via the Internet, allowing users to quickly and conveniently update their software as new splice programs become available.

AFL operates the only authorized repair facility for Fujikura splicing products in the U.S. Technical support is available 24/7 and complimentary on-site training is available with every splicer purchased.
