WITH occupational health and safety measures pushing towards greater use of PVC-free and halogen-free equipment, 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, process line controllers, and any application in the low temperature sector.
Suited to short travelling distances and minimum bending radius, the cable has high oil resistance and a long service life in mechanical engineering applications.
Tests at the igus engineering centre confirmed a service life exceeding five million 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.
