igus UK has devised a system to strip back long lengths of cable both quickly and easily. By integrating a tear strip into the cable jacket, CFRIP simplifies the stripping back of the cables, especially for those with gusset-filled extruded jackets, without damaging the cores.

With just a few steps, the outer jacket can be opened like a zipper to the desired length by simply pulling the special CFRIP tear strip. According to the company, electrical engineers and panel fitters can not only save 50 per cent of the cable stripping time typically required using conventional methods, but also avoid the need for additional cable stripping tools.

The cables are also designed in such a way that the integrated tear strip doesn’t damage the outer jacket or cores during operation.

igus CFRIP technology is offered in the chainflex CF5 PVC control cable family, where the tear strip is in the outer jacket, and in the chainflex CF6 shielded version, where the tear strip is in the inner jacket. Other types of chainflex cable integrating CFRIP technology are being considered.

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
