We at igus have specialised in cables for moving applications. Our chainflex cables are therefore only suitable for applications with low or periodic water influence and not for continuous use deep under water.
The reason for this, is that we must ensure the materials’ abrasion resistance, and we cannot do this with rubber-like outer jackets.
A brief look at the igus history shows: new challenges also always hold opportunities for new products and markets.
If the market does not offer adequate solutions, it is possible to create new production and test standards with good ideas, precision and a lot of care.
Industry 4.0 has now found its way into very many applications. Data is collected at a wide variety of points and must be conveyed to the control system. Used here among other things are our chainflex cables. But when is fibre optic cable the right solution? And can fibre optic cable be used with small bend radii? We would like to take a closer look at that today.
Regardless of the application area you are dealing with, igus® has made it its business to find a cable that meets all requirements. Benefit from our variety of cables. From low-cost solutions with PVC outer jacket to high-end TPE cables. Everything in line with our motto: Cost down, life up!
We have introduced the chainflex Class. This should help to select the right cable based on the criteria of stress, travel, oil resistance and torsion. The higher the number, the better the cable.
nto my luggage or another piece of wood into the already packed fireplace. “There’s still some space there!” This is also often the motto in everyday life. I often see the same picture with regard to cables in energy chains. Therefore, in this post I would like to educate about overfilled e-chains
The list of areas of use for chainflex cables and applications is long. It is therefore difficult to say in a nutshell where cables will be used. This is partly due to the many different branches of industry that igus supplies with its wide range of products. It is always exciting for us to see where our products are used.
