To meet the needs of new fiber-optic systems, it was necessary to develop a mechanical splice that would work with a short length of fiber and a cable structure that allows easy fiber access after the sheath has been removed. The authors discuss the concept of the new mechanical splice and the tool developed to perform splicing. The two-fiber mechanical splicing method allows quick splicing and does not require adjustment operations by skilled workers. At the same time, it provides high reliability and low loss performance for long periods of time. The small size and light weight of the splicing machine makes it possible to splice short fibers. Results of tests confirming the reliability of the splice are reported
