Features

Easier and simpler. Amazingly easy to connect!

Vacuum-resistant fiber flange designed to enable easy connection (one-touch connection) and disconnection of fibers one by one or at the same time.

One-touch connection just in 1 second

Simply insert the fiber into the flange

The newly developed one-touch connection system allows easy connection of a fiber by simply positioning the fiber in the specified direction and inserting. The fiber can be disconnected by pulling the holding bracket up. The one-touch connection system helps reduce working hours dramatically.

Thread fastening type

Thread fastening type

  • It is difficult to tighten with a glove-covered hand.
  • Small parts can be easily lost.
  • Excessive tightening can break or bend the wire.
One-touch type

One-touch type

  • One-touch connection system reduces working hours and workload dramatically.
  • Connection is as easy as inserting the fiber into the flange.
  • Easy connection without a tool or torque management.
* The disconnection prevention structure uses a holding bracket that engages securely with the joint bracket.

Vacuum-resistant 4CH / 1CH flange

Requires drilling of only one hole

The flange connection system requires less space for the fiber lead-in section and fewer holes to drill.
Previously, one installation hole had to be drilled for each fiber. The vacuum-resistant flange requires only one hole even for multiple fibers, thus reducing the hole drilling cost and the possibility of leakage.

Conventional fiber lead-in section

Conventional fiber lead-in section

  • A hole must be drilled for each fiber at the lead-in section.
  • An ample space is needed for inserting a hand and using a tool.

  • Only one hole needs to be drilled even for the connection of eight fibers. This reduces the processing cost and the worries for leakage to 1/8.
  • Saves space at the lead-in section because fibers can be grouped and connected.

Leakage seal construction

The leakage seal construction has built-in glass wires inside the flange and allows transmission of only light to the vacuum side.
Leakage remains unchanged even when fiber is not connected.
* Leakage from 4CH / 1CH flange: 1.0 × 10-10 Pa·m3/s [He] or less

Contributes to your product quality improvement and workload reduction

Using the integrated manufacturing system established in our factory, we conduct all processes ranging from product development to production, quality control, packaging and shipping.

Vacuum baking for the reduction of outgas

The vacuum side fiber and flange are cleaned and baked, and then seal-packed and doublepacked for shipping.
