Sku: CI03BT

Quick Overview

The CI-03 is the best cleaver for field technicians, it is compact, has an integrated sharps collector, an autorotating blade which gives up to 75,000 cleaves and does not require the user to adjust the blade. The CI-03 uses an oil damper system to ensure the blade contacts the fibre at a steady speed. This reduces stress to the fibre ensuring the best quality cleaves.

The CI-03 fibre cleaver includes a flexible clamping system to prevent vibration shock to the fibre during the cleaving process. This gives a dramatic quality improvement in the cleaved end face, core cracking, cleave angle and life span of the blade. It is engineered for high quality and consistency of cleaves.

The CI-03 is a single action fibre cleaver which does not need the user to engage the blade prior to cleaving as with some other cleavers. You simply clamp the fibre into the vee-groove and close the cleaving arm. Simply the action of raising the arm engages the blade automatically ready for the next cleave.

One of the main problems for standard fibre cleavers is that the blade needs to be rotated after the blade position has worn and has deteriorated. So the CI-03 fibre cleaver tackles this by rotating the blade after each cleave. Consequently, this leads to a massive increase in the blade longevity, improved cleaves and removes the need for blade adjustment. Too often with standard cleavers, operators have problems adjusting the blade but now the CI-03 eliminates this problem saving you time, effort and expense. In addition the CI-03 fibre cleaver uses a Swift Oil damper bearing system to produce the finest fibre end faces which have no cracks.
