Fitel Fusion Splicers & Accessories
There are a number of ways to categorize splicers. Here we categorize them based on the fiber alignment
type:  Fixed V-Groove alignment type, Active V-groove alignment and Core-Alignment type. The Fixed
V-Groove is typically used for ribbon fiber splicing. Active V-groove alignment and Core-Alignment type is
used for single fiber splicing with more precise requirements, such as optical components manufacturing.
