Title (EN) PROCESS AND APPARATUS FOR MANUFACTURING AN OPTICAL CABLE
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE FABRICATION D'UN CABLE A FIBRE OPTIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An optical cable is manufactured in a single continuous process starting directly from at least an optical perform, by means of a fiber/cable integrated manufacturing line (50) including a fiber(s) drawingassembly (100) for the production of one or more optical fibers from respective optical preforms, and a cabling assembly (200) for producing the optical cable from the optical fiber(s), the cabling assembly comprising a fiber buffering assembly (200a) for the application of a loose or tight coating to the optical fiber(s), and a strengthening and sheathing sub-assembly (200b) for applying one or more reinforcing and protective layers to the buffered optical fiber(s).
(FR)L'invention concerne un câble à fibre optique fabriqué au cours d'un procédé continu unique qui commence directement à partir d'au moins une préforme optique au moyen d'une chaîne de fabrication intégrée de fibre/câble (50) comprenant un ensemble de tirage de fibres (100) pour la production d'au moins une fibre optique à partir de préformes optiques respectives et un ensemble de câblage (200) destiné à la production du câble optique à partir des fibres optiques. Ledit ensemble de câblage comporte un ensemble d'amortissement de fibres (200a) pour l'application d'un revêtement lâche ou serré sur les fibres optiques et un sous-ensemble de renforcement et de gainage (200b) pour l'application d'au moins une couche de renforcement et de protection sur les fibres optiques gainées.
