From Sumitomo starts the first fusion splicer in 1980’s, it has been around 40 years now and arc fusion splicing plays an important role in the installation of modern fibre networks and FTTH. (Fibre to the Home).


When you decided to buy a fusion splicer, what should to be considered when making decisions? Please refer to follow tips.



1.The machine’s performance, this is definitely coming first. Usually the splicing time, heating time, is it core alignment? warranty need to be taken into consideration.


2. Never consider buying fake or reimbursed products. You cannot get support and warranty. Find the accredited distributor and ask for confirmation. Shinho has distributors in many countries, contact us if you need one.


3. Brand and country of manufacture. Like with anything, consider a reputable brand and avoid anything uncommon. Be careful of the cheaper brands as it is a proven fact that some brands work well new; however, the splice quality soon deteriorates. This is due to inferior electronics, especially the arc-discharge unit. The arc-discharge unit is the component that creates the 8000Volt DC arc across the electrodes. Electrodes from Shinho could support at least 4000 arcs.


4.Investigate and confirm that the distributor offers aftersales service in the form of an accredited calibration lab and that service and repairs are done swiftly. The distributor must carry spares and have properly trained technicians. A splice machine is an electro-mechanical unit with many moving parts. To calibrate and test a splice machine is a timeous job and the trained technician doing the job will not come cheap.We Shinho had test machines with several process to make sure the quality.


5. Check service intervals and consumables. Different brands and models offer different specification on electrode life, etc. You want something that will do many splices before service is necessary.


6.Look at the integrity of the supplier and distributor. Buy from people whom features the product as a core product in their range of products.
