Cleaver

When you prepare for a splice, it is always extremely important to use the correct optical fiber cleaver to cut a fiber correctly. Cleaving is the process by which an optical fiber is “broken”or cut with precision. This tool prepares the fiber for a splice The fiber is not actually cut. It is scored by scratching the fiber surface. By stressing the fiber along the score it is snapped with a clean break. A good cleaver should clamp the fiber under a firm tension and produce a consistent precision break. This can be done easily regardless of the fiber optic technician that is using the cleaver. You do not want a fiber cable with an angled cut. Precision is key when using this process. A fully automatic cleaver is usually the best tool to use for this operation. All the tech has to do is place the fiber in the correct position, clamp it and let the cleaver do the rest. If a cleaver is not fully automatic it requires a bit more skill as the operator must apply the pressure to snap the fiber. This method is a bit less accurate.
