Make splicing easier and faster with this all-in-one fusion splicer. Never again will you have to juggle cleaver, hand strippers and alcohol bottles when you’re up a pole or working on a ladder. The KF4A FTTx Splicer has everything safely in one unit: a splicer, oven, a built-in heat stripper, precision cleaver and alcohol dispenser.
It is not just a splicer; it’s a splicing multi-tool. You can splice connectors directly to fibre, repair cables – and make your own pigtails and bespoke patch cords on site. There’s also a built-in power meter and visible source option, giving you the complete splicing platform to install FTTx networks.
The 4-motor active cladding alignment means losses are low and the built-in heat stripper also gives high strength splices. The Swift KF4A offers you all the flexibility, capability and productivity you’ll need.
All the tools you need on one device. The fibre stripper, alcohol dispenser and
cleaver are built into the splicer – and it’s light enough to wear with a work
harness. This means you won’t lose or drop anything when working at height. So
now you can focus on getting the job done quickly, professionally and safely.
There are many advantages of heat stripping the fibre. If you only use hand
strippers, there is a risk that the fibre will get damaged – which causes weak
splices and link failure. But, with the KF4A the built-in heat stripper softens and
rips the coating off the fibre without touching the glass. This method is normally
used in undersea joints, but the KF4A offers it as standard.
The auto-rotating cleaver blade moves around after each cleave. This ensures
better cleaving, while also reducing the need for maintenance. There’s a built-in
fibre chip collector too, ensuring you always have the safest working
A one-touch pump action dispenser is built into the splicer. It’s placed between
the stripper and cleaver – so it’s easy to refill.
As with standard splicers, the KF4A FTTx Splicer comes fitted with fibre clamps, but you can also use fibre holders to transport the fibre. The fibre is clamped in the holder
and then transported between the heat stripper and cleaver, before going into
the splicing position. This makes the splicing process much quicker – as the fibre
only has to be positioned once – and it improves the precision and repeatability
of the slicing operation. So, you no longer have to worry about strip lengths and
There are also holders for cable and splice on connectors, allowing you to make
your own pigtails and bespoke patch cords. If you need a precise length (say 28-
metre SCPC to LCAPC patch cord), you have two options: call your supplier for a
7-day delivery; or make your own on-site in just 6 minutes!

With the built-in Power Meter and visible source, the KF4A FTTx splicer gives a splice loss
estimation – as well as the loss of Splice On Connectors or other components.
IPASS Active Clad-to-Clad alignment ensures low loss splices. On single-mode,
you’ll get 0.02dB, and on multi-mode you’ll get 0.01dB.
Resistance to Shock, Dust and Water:
With a proven resistance to shock, water and dust – no matter how harsh the
environment is – the KF4A FTTx splicer offers highly reliable and stable
