GMP Introduces New AirStream Cable Blowing Machine

  • GMP
TREVOSE, PA — General Machine Products Company (GMP), a global supplier of products for the telecommunications industry, introduced the AirStream Cable Blowing Machine to its line of fiber optic cable placing equipment. Specifically designed to safely install micro fiber cable into pre-installed 5.0 to 18.0 mm (0.196 to 0.708 inch) OD micro duct, the AirStream will place 2.5 to 11.0 mm (0.098 to 0.433 inch) OD cable at speeds up to 80 M (260 feet) per minute. This, along with its low maintenance and high reliability, makes the AirStream an excellent value.

The AirStream 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 20 kg (44 lbs.) maximum, can be adjusted to suit the cable stiffness.

The AirStream uses compressed air to install micro fiber cable into micro duct in both indoor and outdoor environments. Its electrically operated, double belt drive can be operated in forward and reverse to propel the cable through the micro duct. An electronic monitoring system provides read-outs of speed and distance, and includes an emergency stop capability.

Primary features include:

  • Compressors are available to accommodate GMP's complete line of cable blowing machines

  • On-site training is available with purchase

  • Rental and rent-to-own programs are available.

  • One person operation

  • Tabletop design with ergonomic controls

  • Cable speed and distance monitoring on a digital display

  • Reduced noise levels

Compressors are also available to accommodate GMP's complete line of cable blowing machines. Note: the AirStream requires 110/120 Volt AC service.
