igus has extended its CFRIP range to more than 230 cable types. According to the company, this is a novel solution for stripping cables in which the outer jacket can be stripped to the desired length simply by pulling the special CFRIP cord.

CFRIP cables

Long lengths can be stripped in half the time and the system ensures that no damage occurs to the core insulation.

Along with chainflex CF5 PVC control cables — where the CFRIP cord is in the outer jacket, and the shielded version chainflex CF6, where the cord is in the inner jacket — CFRIP is now integrated in the CF130 and CF140 control cable series, as well as the entire motor cable range.

As with all products in the chainflex range, CFRIP is tested for millions of cycles of movement in e-chains for assured reliability in dynamic applications.

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.
