MAL-MET company news for the coming year 2020


For 11 years of experience in the fiber optic industry and cooperation with clients with whom technical dialogue is conducted and exchange of current experience, another idea was born. The idea for designing the latest generation of machines for blowing fiber optic cables, secondary pipes and so-called packages was implemented throughout the year 2019. The company worked, designed and conducted research to make the operators’ work more efficient and efficient.
For a long time, the company has been receiving information that our blow molding machines are machines that meet the expectations of customers. The provided reference letters and telephones with information on the new records of fiber optic route length and machine reliability are the motivation for further operation and development for the company.
When we ask ourselves: why this electronics in our machines? There was one answer: it was always about the simplest and most reliable construction, simple operation and reliability. And these assumptions were correct, but today’s technologies allow for the implementation of new solutions and ideas.
Machines built nowadays should be, as so far, reliable, trouble-free, but still intelligent and those that can control the process of blowing. So, if we create precise mechanics, made of appropriate materials on precise machine tools in the latest technology and add an intelligent controller with a touch panel, then we can say that we are opening a new era of machines. The latest machine models meet all European requirements, and much more. The offer for the first half of 2020 will include models from the MAH-4, MAH-4 Universal series. The configuration of these models will depend on the person and the contracting company.

The above-mentioned models will be equipped with:

  • intelligent touch controller
  • two modes of operation: manual – allows you to operate the so-called manual – i.e. the operator controls the settings during operation, automatic – after entering the appropriate data and activating the automatic mode, the machine independently controls the cable feeding process with the appropriate force and prevents damage to the fiber optic cable.
  • injection parameters registration: effective force on the cable measured in Newton (N), fiber wearing pressure (bar), injection speed (m / min), injection length (m),
  • creating a graph while the machine is working
  • GPS location of the machine on the map
  • reading weather conditions – temperature, atmospheric pressure (Hpa), humidity (RH%)
  • wireless connection of the machine with auxiliary equipment such as tablet, laptop, telephone, etc., date and time
  • handling the blowing report is done using a web browser with prepared information tables.

The machines can be equipped with 4 different models of heads.

  • The basic head is used for blowing cables and microducts.
  • Micro head, as the name implies, for blowing micro cables pasta.
  • Y head cables and pipe packages, it is possible to blow another cable or pipe to the existing installation in one direction.
  • Head X cables and pipe packages, gives the possibility of blowing another cable or pipe to the existing installation in two directions, i.e. with so-called looping.

Model configurations:
1 / MAH-4 electronics – cable and pipe range from 3 to 17 mm, duplicate range from 7 to 50 mm. Touch controller, without recorder and chart creation, and automatic operation. Configuration can be expanded at a later date.

FIBER OPTIC BLOWERS MAL-MET General Information

Fiber optic blow molding machines for MINI MAH-3, MAH-3 and MAH-3 UNIWERSAL are fully professional machines for inserting and blowing microcables, optical fibers, copper cables, etc. in the secondary pipes. The most important advantages of blow molding machines are its patented construction and construction as well as the technology of its implementation. Blow molding machines are manufactured in Poland from scratch at MAL-MET in the latest CNC technology and have a CE declaration of conformity. Based on the opinions of our customers and taking into account the tests carried out, our blow molding machines are the most powerful among the available fiber and fiber blowing machines on the world market. We obtained this result by using the best materials in the production as well as the well thought-out and patented design of the machine.
The most important features of fiber optic blowers manufactured by us are:

  • Versatility – The scope of operation of the blow molding machine allows the insertion of cables from 0.8 mm to 16 (on request up to 30 mm) mm and the use of all duplicates used in this industry.
  • Reliability – The reliability of the blow molding machine is influenced by factors such as the patented design, accuracy of manufacturing technology, a large number of bearings, selection and use of the highest quality materials in production.
  • Speed – The blow molding machine inserts approx. 110 m cable per minute.
  • Power (strength) – Thanks to the arrangement of profiled rollers that wrap the cable in 90%, we can introduce it with high force and speed, and at the same time avoid slipping of the cable or even its chafing (damage) or breakage. In addition, each roller has its own drive, which is transmitted through a pneumatic gear motor.
  • Operation method – Thanks to the transparent covers, the blow molding machine operator can adjust cable pressure and chain tension during operation.
  • Blowing methods: The machine supports two methods of blowing fiber optics: stream method and piston method.
  • Adjustable air head.
  • Possibility of lubrication of the follower during blowing.
  • Supplying the machine with one hose.
  • The latest wireless Bluetooth meter with many functions (large backlit display, Polish, English and German language, cable speed, daily and total counter, counts back and forth: when pulling out the cable subtracts the given distance, ambient temperature, battery level indicator, built-in battery charged via USB, possibility of connecting with the application on the phone).

DESCRIPTION OF WORK Machines for blowing and introducing optical fibers

The fiber optic cable is inserted through a set of aluminum-rubber profile rollers depending on the outer diameter of the cable. Each roller has its own mechanical drive, which is transmitted by gears and a chain.

The rubber part of the roll is designed to prevent the cable from slipping when there are resistances that appear on long sections and bends of fiber optic routes. The groove in the rubber part profiled for the diameter of the cable wraps the optical fiber in 90% thanks to which we increase the force of fiber insertion in the follower tube. With the correct pressure setting of the cable rollers, the rollers perform the function of a clutch. If the pressure on the rollers is too high, the rollers forgive operator errors and do not damage the cable.

The driving force of the mechanical system of the roller assembly is a pneumatic gearmotor. Supporting the process of blowing the optical fiber into the follower tube, the head in which compressed air is fed plays an important role. The head is so-called reliable mechanical feeder turbine. The air head was constructed in such a way that compressed air fed and appropriately shaped to the repeater lifts the cable minimizing the friction of the cable against the internal walls of the repeater. Thanks to the lower friction, it is possible to feed the cable over much longer distances.

Each machine has a set of nozzles and rollers with supports for each cable diameter. Individual types of blowing machines produced by us support all types of optical fibers and microcables.
