What is a Fiber Cable blowing machine? Why is it important?

The Importance of Fiber Cable blowing machine


A Fiber cable blowing machine , also known as the fiber blowing machine, gets specially designed to fit the fiber optic cables into the telecommunication ducts or micro ducts. The fitting of the optic cable and the ducts happen with the help of compressed air or water.


  • Understanding the machine and functioning units


The cable blowing machines have multiple parts that work by combining each part to accomplish the necessary task. It is primarily essential for telecommunication. See the following parts of the fiber cable blowing machine to understand how they contribute individually for distinct aspects of functioning:

  1. Head: The blowing head of the machine lies at the side of the fiber cable blowing machine. It is the part that is responsible for fitting the duct. Apart from ensuring the security measure of the functioning unit, the head is responsible for the correct insertion of the cable into the duct and making a sealed condition. The sealing is highly useful for functioning as it resists the medium in use, air or water, to get inside the machine.
  2. Belt feeder: The belt feeder of the blowing machine lies above the base frame. The feeder is responsible for the movement of the cable towards the head. If the cable does not reach up to the head, the insertion cannot get completed.
  3. Base frame: The base plate, commonly called the base frame, lies at the bottom of the machine. It appears like a base stand on which the whole system stands and the functioning happens. It is the mounting board to hold the parts involved in the blowing machine. Every structure on this plate gets connected to the sub-systems of the machine.


  • Establishment of fiber cables


The above were the parts of the machine that set up the structure for working of the fiber cables involved in the process. The following comprises the connection and establishment of the cable system to help monitor and meet the concerned speed and functionalities.


1. System of cables: The cable guidance or system of cables used to roll up the cables into the head of the blowing machine.

2. Connecting inlets: The connecting inlets lies at the other side of the head of the blowing machine so that there is no possibility of penetration of the medium in use. The inlet allows the entry of the medium, which can be either water or compressed air.

3. Meter counter: The meter counter gets fixed at the lateral side that displays the length of the blown cable. The cable counter also shows the velocity of the blown cable for better understanding.

4. Monitoring unit: TheControlling the speed and functioning of the machine is highly important. The controlling or monitoring unit allows the user to control the speed of the cable insertion the functioning power of the input feeder.

  • Major utilities of a blowing machine


Reading the above functioning parts will help you understand the machines' primary functioning goals and the basics to achieve them. Now, coming to the uses of the machine. The cable blowing machine is widely in use and has proven better compared to the pulling techniques. For this, you can find the equipment in telecommunication fields and other distant networks that encounter higher frictions. Blowers are highly effective in reducing frictions and accomplishes the functioning criteria conveniently.


  • Long-distance networks


The high-speed blowing machines have a high utility index in the fields that concern the establishment of long-distance network systems. They allow easy bends and angulations in comparison to the pulling techniques. The blowing force of the machine pushes the cable smoothly into the curves without making alterations to the route geometry. You can find its use in the following practical applications:

1.OSP Fiber deployment



4.Widely spread internet networks


  • Using benefits at a glance


The blowing techniques of the machine, other than allowing convenient routing facilities and distant site establishment aspects, also feature the following advantages that had led to the increase in their use.

  1. • Damage prevention: The blower helps establish a secured connection of the fiber cables without letting the medium interfere.
  2. • Micro duct installation: The blowing machine techniques play a large part or making the most of the duct capacity. It is suitable for modern optical fiber cables that contain bare fibers and reduced cladding diameters. Also, it allows better flexibility with micro duct twists with near-zero bend losses.
  3. • Better performance: It certainly helps in the reduction of interruptions that helps in improving the workflow.
  4. • Easy installation and removal: The blowing device allow quick installation and high cable speeds through the inner duct or underground ductwork. Also, the removal of old fiber is easier and eliminates the chance of damage. These practical advantages have added to the growing use.


Summing up the highlights


Fiber cable blowing machines are economic and safe, making them highly useful and convenient for establishing a secure network over a long distance without compromising on the performance or speed of workflow. It is the best choice for installing fibers into micro ducts and long-distance OSP application for a seamless performance.
