Special cables for e-chains®
As an expert in energy chain systems, igus® supplies all components from a single source - including the cables. The design principle of the chainflex® cables dispenses with problems such as "corkscrews" and core breaks in cables in moving applications and machine downtimes are thus prevented. In contrast to the frequently offered "chain-friendly" cables with braiding in layers, igus® manufactures chainflex® cables according to the principle of braiding in bundles. The material and manufacture of shield and jacket of chainflex® cables are also specifically designed for use in energy chain applications. Since 1989, this has proven itself millions of times in practice around the world.
In our own test laboratory at the Cologne site, about 650 series of tests with cables have been carried out in parallel over the past 25 years on an average under the most difficult operating conditions. These results are continuously incorporated into product development and the online service life calculator. This allows us to give our customers planning safety and thereby also become the only manufacturer to extend a guarantee of 36 months or over 10 million strokes.
No contradiction: good cables cost less
Quick availability throughout the world is a significant purchase criterion. With cable production on three continents and 14 storage and assembly centres around the world, the customer gets the exact cable he needs from stock. The advantages for chainflex® cables are the presence of igus® in over 40 countries and the availability of cables from stock. This saves time, money, storage capacity and applies to each one of our 1,244 cable types which you can order without any minimum quantity purchases, surcharges or cutting costs.
