Dynamic cabling specialist igus UK is now offering a complete NFPA-compliant range of control, bus, motor, servo and measuring system chainflex cables, with more than 650 versions available from stock within 24 hours.

Mechanical engineers can use these specifically designed flame retardant cables for energy chain applications without compromising on durability or safety

Mechanical engineers can use these specifically designed flame-retardant cables — which conform to the 79-2012 standard (chapter 12.9) of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) — for energy chain applications without compromising on durability or safety.

The igus chainflex cables are reliable and flame retardant, resisting the spread of fire into a new area. The company puts its chainflex cables through a tough life test programme of around two billion test cycles annually at its technical centre. This ensures that the cables are suitable for dynamic applications and also comply with international standards such as NFPA 79-2012 and UL 758.

The company’s NFPA-compliant chainflex cables meet the specific regulations for the type of shielding, temperature range, tension, build-up, material class, section thickness and general architecture of a cable as set out in the standard for AWM cables.

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.
