WITH occupational health and safety measures pushing towards greater use of PVC-free and halogen-free equipment in workshops, production lines and general manufacturing and engineering, Treotham Trading has released a new control cable with these characteristics.
The igus Chainflex CF 170.D: Desina-conforming control cable has PVC-free and halogen-free properties conforming to safety expectations of machine tool operators, processing line controllers, and any other application in the low temperature sector.
Ideally suited to short travelling distances and minimum bending radius, the cable has high oil resistance and an extremely long service life in mechanical engineering applications.
Tests at the igus engineering centre have confirmed a service life exceeding 5,000,000 strokes due to the product's abrasion proof PUR external jacket and special Chainflex constructions for braiding and stranded colour structures.
A broad field of applications is facilitated by an extensive temperature range of -20°C to +80°C. Minimum bending radius in the energy conduction chain equates to ten times the cable diameter.
