Bare Fiber Chucks
The BFC series of bare fiber chucks are compatible with
fibers from 80 Ám to 1 mm diameters. When used with our BFT
series fiber translators these fiber chucks are a flexible means to hold
fibers precisely without damage. The precision diameter of the BFC
fiber chucks enable a smooth slip fit into our fiber translators.
The BFC250 and
BFC300 use a tapered jaw design to securely hold fibers in place without
damage. Our BFC250 uses a solid brass four-jaw design that holds the
fiber in place with the simple twist of the knurled end cap. The
BFC300 uses a Delrin« two-jaw design that is also clamped by the twist of
the end cap.
The BFC80 is
made from solid brass and uses a leaf spring to secure the fiber along the
entire length of the 0.010-inch slot that runs parallel to the diameter of
the BFC80. The clamping action of the BFC80 occurs when it is slid
into one of the BFT series of fiber translators.
All models are
threaded on the end to accept the BFC-SR stain relief. This simple
stain relief uses a Delrin« two-jaw design that is clamped by the twist of
the knurled end cap.
