Cable / Fiber Optic / OPGW production line

Typical FO cables
Most of the equipments needed on our production lines
have been designed by our staff of engineers (mechanical, electrical & software) and after being assembled in our premices, are tested by our process engineers during the line setup and validation phase.

Almost all these equipments can also be delivered separately as stand alone devices.
The integration of these equipments in existing lines can be offered too, but should be first well defined and discussed with our technical/sales staff.

Please take contact with THE Machines Yvonand SA for more information on our available solutions. (> contact us <)
