POLISHING FIXTURES

All workholder fixtures incorporate Krell’s unique independent suspension feature at each connector position for more uniform and consistent polishing. Each connector position is also independently aligned to an optical reference for minimal apex offset using Krell's patented workholder mechanism. Polishing workholder fixtures are available for all industry standard fiber optic connectors. All Krell workholders are designed to be quickly and easily interchanged for different applications.

When requesting a workholder quotation, please identify polisher model, connector types, and number of polishing positions.
