THE igus Chainflex CF130/140 series of layer-stranded control cables has UL certification for all cross sections.
Typical applications for this PVC control cable includes energy chain applications in packaging, handling and automation systems, cutting and welding systems and woodworking machines.
Process technology and materials have also been improved with the product.
Distributed in Australia by Treotham Trading , the igus-developed process of bundle-stranding (starting from 12 cores) around a high tensile core cord prevents cork-screwing and core rupture.
In constantly moving energy supply systems operating over long distances, this multi stranded structure provides a very high degree of safety and reliability.
The abrasion-proof PVC outer sheath and inner sheath (for CF140.UL), which are pressure extruded in a gusset-filling process to penetrate all gaps in the stranded cable, ensure extra stabilisation even when exposed to high bending stress.
The outer diameter of the bundle-stranded CF130.UL/CF140.UL series is equivalent to the outer diameter of the layer stranded series.
