Do you still offer the FBC-001 cleaver?

In 2011, Corning replaced the FBC-001 with an upgraded version called the FBC-002. The benefits of the FBC-002 that initiated this change are: extended blade life from 1,000 cleaves to 5,000 cleaves; the FBC-002 prevents excessive bending that can result in permanent damage to the tool's tab; and better control of the bend radius when cleaving, which localizes the bend point and minimizes twist, resulting in a higher quality cleave. The FBC-001 is now obsolete as a result.

What is the difference between the FBC-007 and FBC-015 cleavers?
In August, 2011 Corning released the FBC-007 cleaver, which replaced the FBC-015 cleaver as the standard offering in the UniCam® High-Performance Installation Tool Kit. The benefits of the FBC-007 that led to this change are reduced maintenance requirements and a more intuitive, user-friendly design that maintains a high-quality cleave of less than one degree. The FBC-015 is now obsolete as a result.

What is the part number for the replacement blade on the FBC-002 Cleaver?
We do not sell a replacement blade for the FBC-002 cleaver because the replacement blade costs nearly as much as a new product. The FBC-002 Cleaver's useful life is 5,000 cleaves. After the cleaver has reached its lifetime cleave amount, you will need to purchase another FBC-002 Cleaver.

Replacement blades are available for the FBC-007 cleaver and this part number is FBC-14-15-16-Blade .

What is the cleave length on FBC-007 cleaver? How will I know when the fiber is fully inserted?
All UniCam Connectors utilize cleave lengths between 8.0 and 10.0 millimeters. The FBC-007 cleaver provides a 10 millimeter cleave on 900 micron, tight-buffered applications. The various handlers ensure the cleave length is correct. For 900 micron tight-buffered fiber, the handler has a positive stop.

What fiber types can I cleave with the FBC-007 cleaver?
The FBC-007 cleaver is compatible with all single-mode and multimode fiber types; and with 900 um, buffer tube fan-out kits and jacketed cable. As always, installers should not try to cleave through 250 micron fiber. Rather, they should strip the fiber down to the 125 micron level.
