Title: POLISHING MACHINE AND METHOD FOR POLISHING OPTICAL WAVEGUIDES
Abstract:
The invention relates to a polishing machine (10) and to a method for polishing optical waveguides, comprising a polishing disc (13) having a plug socket (14) for holding a plug with an optical waveguide, a polishing platform (15) for receiving a polishing means, a positioning device (17) for the relative positioning of the polishing disc and the polishing platform between a polishing position and a set-up position (16), and a drive device for carrying out a relative polishing motion of the polishing platform and the polishing fixture in the polishing position. The positioning device has a holding system (20) for removably holding the polishing disc and the polishing machine has a metering device for applying a rinsing liquid to the polishing platform, a passage being provided in the polishing disc, through which the rinsing liquid can be metered onto the polishing platform by means of the metering device.
