Fiber strippers are specialized tools used in the field of fiber optic communications to remove the protective coating from optical fibers. They are designed to precisely and cleanly strip away the outer layer of coating without damaging the fragile fiber underneath. Fiber strippers typically consist of a set of jaws or blades that grip the fiber and remove the coating through controlled pressure or cutting action. These tools come in various types and sizes to accommodate different fiber diameters and coating materials. Fiber strippers are essential for preparing fiber optic cables for splicing, termination, or connectorization, ensuring optimal signal transmission and minimizing signal loss or disruption.
