Need Training on Drawing Towers

Hi,
Rizwnan here. I want to get the training on drawing tower and specialty fiber drawing tower. If any one help me in this

Hi Rizwan, training on drawing towers are specialized process training. Fiber drawing machine makers give training when the commission the machines. Tower makers such as Nextrom-Rosendahl, Heathway, Royle etc. provide training as part of technology transfer. Fiber manufacturers such as Fujikura, Furukawa, Sumitomo, Corning, Prysmian, Sterlite etc. provide training to their staff only. It takes more than one year to get proper training in fiber drawing.

In view of the above, the best way to get trained in fiber drawing is to get a job as a trainee in any of the fiber manufacturer’s facility. This is not to disappoint you, but just facts. You can approach Rosendahl-Nextrom team and get their opinion.

Hi Rizwan, I also agree with Mr. Prakash. One of the best fiber optic training available in the industry is The Light Brigade, which is an AFL company. AFL is a fully owned subsidiary of Japan-based Fujikura Ltd. Another one is Fiber Optic Association. As far as we know, both these training providers do not have any training program on optical fiber drawing.
