Welding of optical fibers
Through fiber-optic communication, we are able to obtain data transmission without interference, even up to several terabits per second, and thus, there is a great demand for fiber-optic welders educated in this field.
- appreciates precision,
- looking for a profession with a future,
- eagerly learns new skills or just wants to educate himself.
The ERGON company cordially invites you to the fiber optic welding course, in which you will not only acquire theoretical knowledge, but also master practical experience. We have been operating on the market for over fifteen years, therefore, we are professionals in our field, and the comprehensive quality of services provided to clients does not affect the transparency of prices.
While the process of welding fiber optic connections is not complicated in itself, because we have the right one at our disposal tools with which we support ourselves, the welder is expected to be accurate and persistent in the implementation of the entrusted order.
Welding of optical fibers it is nothing more than connecting wires, which consists of fiberglass and plastics, moreover, through the heat process with the use of an electric arc, we obtain a permanent connection. Instructors from our facilities put a lot of emphasis on education, which involves the right tools or the quality of assembly, and the basic equipment of the welder is, among others: welders, optical power meters, fiber optic cutters, Kevlar scissors, and fiber optic connector cleaners.
Why are the tools we use so important?
There are a lot of offers on the market for the purchase of, among others, welding machines, which do not seem to differ in any way, but are not used the same in every situation.

|Centering welding machines to the real core|
|There are two models for centering to the geometric core and the real core. The initial system is used by most of the niche welding machines and, as in the case of centering to the sheath, it will work well in the case of really good quality fibers, in which the geometric core enters the real core. Positioning for the second is a system used in the best fiber optic splicers. These types of welders independently test the welded fibers and are able to lay them perfectly to the real core, thus reducing the attenuation to zero.||The most economical of the possible options, it allows the fibers to be matched to each other on the basis of their coats. Troublesome for these welding machines are the fibers of poor quality, because the core is not adherent in the place of the jacket. This connection has a slightly higher attenuation.|
|The best quality, but the most expensive. The welder uses a method that can automatically recognize the type of fibers to be welded and arrange them in relation to their real core. It is characterized by almost perfect attenuation parameters.|
The table shows the types of fiber optic splicers and their application.
What are the steps to prepare for welding?
- At the very beginning, the appropriate diameter and length of the heat-shrinkable tube should be selected.
- Then remove the protective layer of the optical fiber with a stripper.
- The next step is to clean the optical fiber of the connecting contact and its precise trimming with a specialized knife with a diamond blade.
- And finally, preparation of the welding box, securing the cable with a heat shrink tube and welding the whole thing in the furnace.
The welding process takes place in 4 stages and takes place via a welding machine. The first thing it does is carefully lay the connecting cables with the exact centering of the fibers in relation to each other. The next step is to bring the contacts closer together with the appropriate selection of the current in the electric arc to obtain the desired temperature, this is to soften the wires and lead to a successful connection quality. In the third step, he reaches the connection of the cables with the use of clamp at the right time, thanks to which the wires are joined. The last stage is the release of heat from the combined conductors, thanks to which their structures thicken and crystallize at the point of connection.
You are not investing in the course, but in yourself. Because with us you will gain knowledge and start to distinguish between the types of optical fibers and the types and applications of optical fiber connectors. We will teach you to prepare cables and equipment for welding. After our course, it will also be easy to perform control measurements and check optical fibers, and you will be familiar with the operation of the welding machine. In addition, after the training, it is possible to obtain welding qualifications, confirmed by a certificate.
The main goal of our company is to provide our clients with first-class training services. Qualified methodologists and other people with many years of practice ensure the quality of education and the best satisfaction in all our facilities, which are located in Warsaw and other regions of Poland. However, for you we reach for more, we are mobile and we also organize closed trainings.
If you are interested in ours offer regarding courses for the position of a fiber welder, please contact us by phone. You will also find a tab on our website, which also describes other trainings, including:
- Goods-passenger lifts training course,
- Quick erecting crane operator course,
- Suspended, mast, stationary platforms and many other interesting proposals.
