iXblue optical fiber stripper tool: Stix

You are working with Optical Fiber and need to remove fiber coating? You have a variety of tools available on your bench but cannot find the one most suited to this particular cladding and coating diameter? You need to try many times before getting an acceptable result with your standard stripping tool?


If this sounds familiar, we have the perfect solution for you. Because our engineers and technicians were not able to find a good stripping tool on the market, we decided to design one based on our 30 years hands-on experience working with optical fibers. This new stripping tool will easily adapt to any clad diameter, as well as any coating diameter, avoiding offset adjustment. Thanks to specific blades - that can be easily changed by the user when needed (after about 500 uses) - clean removal of coating without nicking the fiber’s cladding is made possible.
