New Micro Fiber Cable Blowing Machine Introduced

July 2012, Vol. 67, No. 7

General Machine Products’ Air Stream Micro Fiber Cable Blowing Machine is designed to safely install micro fiber cable into pre-installed 0.196 to 0.708 inch OD micro duct. The Air Stream will place 0.098 to 0.433 inch OD cable at speeds up to 260 feet per minute.

The Air Stream incorporates a tabletop design with easy-to-use ergonomic controls for one-person operation. The unit uses a double belt drive concept, backed by the latest in servo control technology, to provide a secure cable grip with precise torque and speed control. The pushing force, up to 44 pounds maximum, can be adjusted to suit the cable stiffness.

The Air Stream uses compressed air to install micro fiber cable into micro duct in both indoor and outdoor environments. Its electrically powered, double belt drive system controls the cable as it is propelled through the micro duct. An electronic monitoring system provides read-outs of speed and distance, and includes an emergency stop capability. 215.357.5500; GMPtools.com
