Fiber Optic Cable Manufacturing Offering

Maximize speed to market and minimize cost

Cross Company has many years of expertise with automation in the optical fiber manufacturing process.  We specialize in furcation and termination of individual fibers or multi-fibers.  In other words, once the fiber optic cable is made, we provide solutions which prepare the fiber to go into FTTx or data centers. 

Many optical fiber manufacturing companies are currently stripping manually, preparing manually, connecting and terminating manually.  Cross’s automated solutions allow manufacturers to deliver pre-built, pre-configured, pre-terminated solutions as efficiently as possible.  Fiber optic system providers can also benefit from our automation solutions to create tailored connectorized solutions efficiently and profitably.

In addition, Cross can provide new in-process measurement instruments and the calibration services to ensure that your instruments are measuring accurately every time.  Cross also specializes in valves and meters for gas measurement, critical for ensuring the gas recipe produces a proper cure, time after time.

Providing Tangible Value

Every fiber optic cable manufacturer wants to produce smaller, denser, faster fiber which is easier to install and maintain to minimize cost and maximize speed to market.  Cross’s automation solutions help you minimize cost, avoid labor shortages and get your product to market faster.
