3D scratch detection implemented

Sumix has introduced 3D scratch detection function and integrated it into MaxInspect™ interferometric software. Now you can test the connector end face geometry and detect surface defects in a single scan. The report generated by the software will show both geometry parameters like Apex Offset, ROC etc. and scratches and defects tested up to the latest IEC standards. This totally eliminates the need to test patch cords on a desktop microscope and reduces polishing and assembling time by several times.

Scratch detection

Scratch detection is implemented for both single fiber and multi-fiber patchcords. Check with about this great MaxInspect™ software update.
