The PC-controlled Scepter is optimized for the automated polishing of various medical devices that incorporate fiber optic lightguides. Instruments such as catheters, endoscopes, probes, illumination bundles, image fibers, and laser delivery cables are processed, resulting in scratch-free surfaces. Both connectorized and bare fibers can be polished with either flat or angled geometries. Scepter also integrates the company’s unique in-line video inspection system. This feature permits a technician to actively view a fiber during the polishing procedure, verifying quality before removing the lightguide from the unit. Polishing fixtures can be customized for specialized components and applications.
