Top 5 Pain Points of Optical Connector Quality Control in the Asian Market

FiberQA’s sales and customer support team recently concluded a 10-day tour visiting with current and potential clients in China and Thailand. The team listened to the issues concerning optical connector quality control, and helped provide potential solutions to assist and improve companies in the Asian market. Joe Salemi (Manager of Commercial Sales) says, "There were five main issues that were raised over and over again at each stop along the way. We discussed how our FastMT and AVIT systems could help solve all of these problems when incorporated into their quality control process." Continue reading to learn what the TOP FIVE quality control issues are.

Quality Control New Year's Resolutions

We’re nearly one month into 2018, and I’m wondering just how many people have already given up on their resolutions? How long did you last? One day? One week? You’re not alone! We have many pain points in the fiber optic industry, just like we have in our own lives, that we can never quite seem to overcome. We often make (and break) promises about the same things: weight loss can be likened to streamlining bulky and slow processes with automation, being on time can be related to becoming more reliable and consistent, and getting a grip on finances is similar to controlling increasing labor costs.

2017: An Incredible Year in Review

This year has been the biggest yet for FiberQA. We launched not just one or two, but THREE  innovative fiber optic inspection systems with built in cleaning: the AVIT-CH, AVIT-BP, and AVIT-RH. In 2017, we attended several industry events, presented research, including a ground-breaking repeatability study with Lockheed Martin, and gained many valued employees, including our new President. We’re not sure how we can top a year like that, but we are going try!

End Supply Chain Friction By Changing This One Thing About Your Quality Control Process...

One of the biggest issues in the fiber optic industry is supply chain friction. Manufacturers send their connectors to cable assembly houses, which are then installed in data centers and other locations where they will be re-inspected many times throughout their lifespan. Parts are often returned to manufacturers, because of permanent failures during a customer’s inspection.

Supply chain friction that arises from faulty or returned product occurs for a variety of reasons:
