Oakham School Students win Innovation Award

Oakham School Students win Innovation Award

A group of students from Oakham School have a won a prestigous ‘Innovation Award’ after working with our design team on improvements to the Airstream Cable Blowing Machine as part of the Engineering in Education Scheme (EES). The team of 5 students, pictured with Technical Manager Andy Sibun, Managing Director Robert Davidison and Mechanical Design Engineer Arron Graham, were tasked with improving the already reliable Airstream after MD Robert, who had previously heard about the scheme, contacted the school offering them the chance to work on a project with CBS. The School has a long history of working with local engineering firms to take part in the scheme, which specifically challenges students to work with an engineering company to solve a real-world problem, and CBS would be keen to work with the school again on future projects.  To read more click on the link below.

CBS Cable Pulling Stockings

CBS Cable Pulling Stockings

Pulling socks or stockings, are indispensable in many different cable pulling applications. Our range of light, general and heavy duty stockings are manufactured from high-tensile, galvanized steel wire that is evenly hand woven in a single, double or triple wire weave according to pulling tension requirements. Slipped over the outside of the cable, when tension is applied, the grip contracts applying the pulling force to the cable. We reverse weave our grips which create a loop at the end of the grip instead of being crimped or soldered together. The wire is then joined under the crimped head, thus creating a higher quality product that outlasts the competition.

CBS also produce a range of non-conductive stockings. Made from high strength parallel-stranded fibre with a polyethylene sheath, these are also non-corrosive and abrasive resistant, and prevent damage to other components during pulling operations.

 

CBS Portable Duct Rod Pusher

CBS Portable Duct Rod Pusher

The Portable Duct Rod Pusher is designed to assist with rodding operations and makes placing pulling lines or fibre cables into old or occupied conduits that much easier—even with fewer personnel.

Designed specifically to work well with our durable and high-performing 14mm Duct Rod (sold separately), the hydraulically powered Duct Rod Pusher powers the Duct Rod into and out of conduits, pushing and pulling with forces of up to 220kgs at 60bar. The Pusher is able to reach rod speeds of up to 30 metres per minute, when used with the C-1203-F Powerpack, and uses a totalising counter to keep accurate measurements of distance. Each unit is fitted with an extendable tilting boom, reducing the initial bending and potential damage of the Duct Rod, and chamber clamp for stability during underground use.
