Splice 12-fiber ribbons in about 10 secs with an average 0.04 dB loss rather than slitting them, doing 12 individual splices while consuming 12 protection sleeves where 1 will do.
Think of us as a Contractors’ SplicerKit Co-Op - get everything you need, where you need it, when you need it, and READY-to-WORK.
Rent a complete, tested, and clean Corning minimass kit for as little as 30 days for $480 (with all service taxes included), $16 a day beyond that initial month. Run into a snag? Not likely with the toughest ribbon splicer ever manufactured; but if you do, our fleet has depth. Exchange units are always ready to ship at a moment’s notice.
Save time, save money, let us help you get all the good business.

Our fleet has gone many directions over the last 15 years before settling on an exclusive minimass stable. As you might imagine, our TyroLab services group has processed dozens of splicers every week since 2002 - we’ve seen them all, Sumi’s, Fuji’s, Fitel’s, ericsson’s, Siecor/Corning and even the latest crop of Korean entries.
One very small jewel sets the minimass apart when it comes to repeatability and unbeatable ribbon splicing:
The C752 V-groove block uses an exclusive precision polished, etched glass ribbon guide to precision align the ribbon fibers fibers into fusing position. Being etched glass it is difficult for strand contamination or even icky pic to fuse into the grooves. Our tech’s are able to refresh the block every visit with 99% alcohol and micron bristled fiberglass sweeps. This precise guide is the only design that ensures your last splice is as good as your first.
Cleaning is the staple of splicing, stay away from splicers that the V-grooves can’t be cleaned without scrubbing (ceramic), or worse, nylon or plastic that will the inevitably become scratched or burnt with standard use. A degraded performance from your splicing tool originates with machine design to handle the fiber(s). I’m sure they worked quite well out of the box; but, compare results to a minimass after a couple hundred splices and it is obvious why repeatability is not a new equipment data sheet spec. Plastic or nylon V-grooves are not an investment, they are a manufacturing cost reduction to get you past that first year of use, and, ALL models of both core and V-groove alignment splicers rely on accurate V-grooves to bring the fibers together.
