The fibersect rapidly removes the epoxy and fibers of all ferrules and connectors, including MPO/MTP® ferrules and single fiber connectors and ferrules.

news and updates

September 18-20 - Gothenberg, Sweden - Booth # 455

Visit us in Gothenberg at ECOC 2017. Phenix will be represented by our distributor Fiber Optic Center at booth # 455. Demo our fibersect and learn more about how it can revolutionize your multi- and single-fiber connector processing.

what fibersect does

  • Quickly cuts through the epoxy and fiber of all ferrules and connectors, including MPO/MTP, SC, LC, LC Duplex, FC, SMA, ST and MU. Cuts parallel to ferrule face at 0° (flat) or 8° angle (APC).
  • In just seconds, produces a flat cut very close to the ferrule face, presenting the ideal surface for polishing and markedly improving end face geometry.
  • Improves throughput and first pass yield by eliminating manual steps and reducing human variables, thereby minimizing polishing, maximizing reliability and precision, and producing significant savings in production.
  • One-button operation, battery power, and small footprint provide exceptional versatility, portability, and ease of use.

savings in production


“We knew we had to move away from the hand cleaving method, which resulted in cracked fibers and extensive polishing. However, laser cleaver options felt overly complicated and overly expensive. After a side by side comparison we decided to go with the fibersect. Our production line staff are happy to use the fibersect - just put in the ferrule and push the button. Every cleave is practically identical so the polishing process is much more uniform, saving time and money.”

- Engineer Manager, Optical Cabling Systems

“The fibersect provides a more automated, repeatable process for cleaving. After demoing a fibersect we immediately liked it - it’s easy to work with and highly adjustable. We’ve had a significant reduction in cracked fibers since implementing the fibersect in our production. Based on cost analysis and maintenance requirements, we felt the fibersect was the most advantageous option.”

- Quality Engineer, CCX Corporation

about phenix fiber optics

Phenix Fiber Optics was founded in 2005 in Bozeman, Montana, and is leading innovation in fiber optic instrumentation. Our President, Roger Robichaud, has been a pioneer in fiber optic evolution for over 40 years. In 1978, Roger founded Orionics, the first manufacturer of fusion splicers and OTDRs in the US. Our mission at Phenix Fiber Optics is to achieve excellence without compromise in fiber optic instrumentation and our method is one of attending to the highest level of detail, both in development and design.

Phenix Fiber Optics exists to provide the fiber optic industry with a different and better way of approaching fiber optic cable manufacturing. Our approach is rooted in the following values:

  1. Connections to People. Fiber optics is all about the power of connecting. We work with our customers to find creative and successful solutions to their needs. We value the individuals that do this work, whether it be the small team of experts and professionals at Phenix, or the executives, engineers and production line assembly people at our customer companies. We foster a culture where people can connect in a meaningful and purposeful way and be respected for their contributions in furtherance of shared goals.

  2. Creativity and Innovation. We strive to identify solutions for the fiber optic industry that defy convention. Our research and design process is driven by looking at the needs of the field in a new way to create instrumentation that is customer-centered. The result is instrumentation that is simple, precise, adjustable, and affordable - and moves beyond conventional practices and technologies to set a new industry standard

  3. Commitment to Customer Service. The customer drives all that we do at Phenix, and we view the end users of our instruments as key partners. Phenix recognizes that our customers’ production capabilities are critical, and we strive to provide fast, effective support to keep things running smoothly and optimally.
