Advances in automation technology have demanded high flexible energy chain cables be more reliable and last. Guided cables often failed although the energy chain supply system itself was functioning perfectly. In extreme cases, failures caused by "corkscrews" and core ruptures brought the entire production process to a standstill and resulted in high costs.
CF5 and CF6 are our biggest selling range of Chainflex Cables, these are for high load applications and tighter bending radius.
CF130, CF140, CF5 and CF6PVC are our insulated control cable range series. The CF130 and CF140 are for medium load requirements and standard bending radius.
CF77, CF78, CF170, CF180 and CF2 range are made from PUR (polyurethane) and are extremely resistant to oils and chemicals. We have PUR cables with UL and DESNA approvals as well as been halogen free.
CF9 and CF10 ranges are made from TPE and are for the most demanding applications. These cables are for high and low temperatures, extremely tight bending radius and bio-oil resistance.
CF98 and CF99 are for maximum load requirements and the very minimum bending radius possible.
CF ROBOT is a chainflex for robots. They are oil resistant, for high/low temperatures, small bending radii, for twistable loads, have a special bundle design of cores and the outer jacket is extruded over cores.
The unique design of chainflex cables ensure long life even under the most extreme conditions. We are so confident in the quality of the ChainFlex Cables that if they fail you get your money back.
