WILMINGTON, MA., March 4, 2003. kSARIA is applying its patented manufacturing automation technology and design expertise to become a fully automated on-demand manufacturer of custom fiber pigtails, fiber assemblies, and connectorization. kSARIA's automation capability for optical fiber assemblies and connectorization offers optical component manufacturers manufacturing flexibility.
Customers are able to order custom designs, at any quantity, at low prices and ultra-fast 48-hour turn-around while receiving the high and consistent quality benefits that automation delivers.
"Component packaging and pigtailing are long-standing problems for fiberoptics companies. Over the years, efforts to increase automation and reduce manual processing have been frustrated not only by tight tolerances and other technical complexities but also by low unit-quantity orders. Optical equipment OEMs could find significant value in kSARIA's new fully automated process because it provides flexibility for small volumes plus the ability to ramp up production when the market grows, along with improved uniformity and the other advantages of automation," stated Richard Mack, Vice President and General Manager pf market researcher KMI Corp., Providence RI.
kSARIA's proprietary automation handles all the processes required in fiber assemblies, including fiber de-spooling, stripping, cleaning, ferrule attachment, metallization, metal or glass ferrule soldering, polishing and connector attachment. kSARIA's engineers work closely with their customers on fiber assembly designs in order to optimize and deliver both performance and automation benefits.
kSARIA is the only on-demand manufacturer of custom optical fiber pigtails and assemblies. kSARIA produces these advanced optical fiber assemblies using internally developed, patented end-to-end in-line automation. Sophisticated tooling and one-up manufacturing processes enables both high-volume and high-mix/low-volume products (pigtails, fiber stubs, attenuators, patch cords, connectorization, arrays) delivered at compelling prices far below established price points. With automation quality meeting or exceeding industry standards and ultra-fast 48-hour turn-around, kSARIA's automation technology enables customers to get "off-shore pricing with domestic convenience" on their custom designs. kSARIA is located in Wilmington, MA.
