The advantage of WPI’s MicroBeveler over other types of solid-surface bevelers is that the abrasive surface can be easily refreshed. Instead of using a conventional solid abrasive disk, the MicroBeveler abrasive surface is made of a high quality lapping film, widely used in the fiber optics industry. When the surface is damaged or loaded up with glass particles, the abrasive film can be easily replaced. The solid polishing surface of WPI’s new MicroBeveler, turning at 6,000 rpm, provides sufficient cutting force for a very sharp tip in a very short time. The cutting surface is very flat and turns very smoothly, ensuring an undamaged tip.
