Fremco unveils fibre blowing machine with double protection

Fremco, a specialist in the design and production of fibre blowing machines, has introduced a fully automatic portable fibre blowing machine with a unique double-protection system for blown fibre units.

Typically, 10–15 per cent of blown fibres are scrapped during the installation process, which is expensive and time-consuming. With the new Fremco Nanoflow there will be considerably less damage and frustration when installing enhanced performance fibre units (EPFU), the company claims.
