Sumitomo Fusion Splicer – Type-66 – Ribbon Fusion Splicer with Built-in Dual Heat Shrink Ovens

The Type-66 TuffCat mass fusion splicer features an industry first Dual-Automatic-Splice Protection Sleeve Heater System – Sumitomo patent-pending system. The dual heater system’s simultaneous operation helps to eliminate squandered time waiting for a single heater system to complete its cycle. Instead, the streamlined splicing process reduces the bottle neck of heater wait time by 88 percent improving mass splicing efficiency and productivity in the field by 70 percent.

The TuffCat features an effortless fiber holder system to increase splice repeatability while making the unit easy to use regardless while making the unit easy to use regardless of the operator’s experience level. Utilizing precision v-groove alignment, the TuffCat can be used for all types of ribbon and single splicing with an optimum arrangement for ease of use in trunk, aerial or taut-sheath applications.

The TuffCat mass fusion splicer embodies the Sumitomo mission of customer focused engineering by reducing the customer’s overall cost of ownership. The unit features electrodes common with both the Type-39 FastCat and the Type-25e TomCat splicers to reduce the customer’s inventory cost, as well as simplifying the ordering process. The Type-66 fiber holders are compatible with the Type-25e TomCat handheld splicers, as well as existing Sumitomo Type-61, 62, 63 and 65 fusion splicers.
