General Machine Products Co. Inc. (GMP) offers 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 0.196 in. to 0.708 in. OD micro duct, the AirStream will place 0.098 in. to 0.433 in. OD cable at speeds up to 260 ft. 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 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.

With the purchase of any GMP fiber cable blowing machine, onsite training is provided at no additional cost.
