IntelliJet - now in Series-Production

The first semi-automatic cable blowing machine with installation assistant and electronic blowing data recorder.

The new IntelliJet is a pioneering, intelligent cable blowing system that facilitates the laying of fibre optic cables for the machine operators and improves installation quality.

Cable layers as well as customers benefit from these improvements.

DYNAF - Dynamic Friction Tests

Plumettaz developed a test bench where dynamic friction can be tested in real jetting (blowing) conditions, in order to determine the coefficient of friction (COF) between a cable and duct/micro-duct.

This service is provided to cable and duct manufacturers, chemical companies, as well as other partners and customers.

The latest tests are described in the attached News Letter from Nexans about their CablOmix cable. It was the first time that the COF was measured in a helicoidal duct contained in a Medium Voltage cable.
