World’s first cable for hanging applications suitable for SEW-EURODRIVE
igus has developed the CFSPECIAL.192 hybrid cable to ensure trouble-free operation even in demanding hanging applications.
The CFSPECIAL.192 is new to the product range and is the first chainflex hybrid cable for hanging applications, suitable for SEW-EURODRIVE’s MOVILINK DDI drive technology. A high-tensile aramid support element in the cable jacket allows mast heights five times that of standard cables.
“Hybrid technology is becoming more and more popular, so demand for new single-cable solutions is also growing,” igus head of business unit chainflex cables Rainer Rössel says.
“Especially in the material handling field, many companies use SEW-EURODRIVE’s MOVILINK DDI digital motor interface, for which we already offer various cables.
“Hanging applications, however, such as stacker cranes, whose masts can be very high, place special demands on cables. The CFSPECIAL.192 is our newly developed cable solution for stroke heights of up to 50m.”
The CFSPECIAL.192 is the only cable on the market specifically for hanging applications in e-chains, suitable for SEW-EURODRIVE’s MOVILINK DDI.
The new igus hybrid cable also reduces costs for customers by eliminating the need for a second cable and time-consuming cable bracing in the energy chain. The single-cable solution requires less installation space and reduces the weight the system must bear.
“That is why we are the only supplier in the world to offer a 36-month guarantee on all our chainflex cables,” Rainer says.
“This way, users benefit from a durable solution that ensures reliable, trouble-free operation even at great heights and over long distances.”
Users benefit from the much longer cable service life in hanging applications. At the same time, the single-cable solution requires less installation space and reduces the weight the system must bear.
