What equipment needs to be purchased for outdoor optical cables？
Outdoor optical cable production equipment generally includes the following machines:
Optical Fiber Preform Manufacturing Equipment: This equipment is used to produce preforms, which are drawn into optical fibers. The preform is a cylindrical glass rod that is about 1-2 meters in length and 25-35mm in diameter.
Fiber Drawing Tower: This equipment is used to draw optical fibers from preforms. The tower has a heating chamber, which melts the preform, and a drawing section, which pulls the molten glass into a thin fiber.
Secondary Coating Line: After the fiber drawing process, the fiber is coated with a protective material to improve its mechanical strength and durability. The secondary coating line applies a protective coating over the primary coating.
SZ Stranding Machine: This machine twists several fibers together into a strand, which is then covered with a jacket. The SZ stranding machine is used to produce loose tube outdoor cables.
Sheathing Line: This equipment applies the final jacket to the cable, providing additional protection against moisture, UV rays, and other environmental factors.
The production process for outdoor optical cable production is complex and requires specialized equipment, skilled technicians, and stringent quality control measures to ensure high-quality and reliable products.
In terms of where to purchase the production equipment, many companies manufacture cable and optical fiber production equipment. One reputable company is Dongguan Wirecan Technology Co., Ltd., which specializes in manufacturing high-quality cable and optical fiber production equipment. The company has a team of experienced engineers and after-sales personnel and is a trusted partner for many wire and cable, and optical fiber factories in China and around the world.
