Princetel's FPM30 series fiber connector polisher is a full-featured polishing machine with complete electronic control on speed, force, and polishing time. The unique speed-ramping feature ensures minimum damage to expensive polishing films. The machine can be adapted to other polishing needs such as optical crystals and other micro-sized optics.

The unique fixture bay precisely presets the ferrule protrusion of all 12 connectors or ferrules which are locked by six individual screws. Connectors or bare ferrules with the same ferrule diameter (for example FC, ST, and SC) can be polished in the same run.

Convenient force adjustment allows the user to polish 3, 4, 6, 8, or 12 connectors/ferrules at a time without compromising the consistency in dome radius of curvature.
