Introduction to Fiber Optic Splicing Fiber optic splicing is a method to combine the ends of optic fibers together. And only one end of each individual fiber is required. There are mainly two types splicing methods: 1. Mechanical splicing 2. Fusion splicing What Is Mechanical Splicing? Mechanical splicing is using the alignment devices to hold two fiber ends in a exactly aligned position. This enables the light to pass easily through one fiber to another fiber. What Is Fusion Splicing? Fusion splicing is using the professional machine to joint two optical fibers ends together. The splicing machine will hold the fibers to align them in a condensed position, then using heat or electric arc to fuse or weld glass ends together. Four Steps of Mechanical Splicing: 1. 2. 3. 4.

You need to prepare the fiber by cracking off the outer coatings, jackets, tubes. You need to cleave the fiber. You need to join the fibers mechanically with no heat. You need to protect the fiber during the light transmission.

Four Steps of Fusion Splicing: 1. The same as mechanical splicing, you need to strip the outer materials to show the bare fiber. 2. You need to cleave the fiber. 3. You need to splice the fiber with heat. 4. You need to protect the fiber from bending and tensile forces. Conclusion Fiber optic splicing is important for fiber connections. Two different methods of mechanical splicing and fusion splicing are usually used for splicing.
