igus updates chainflex M series with control cables
December 13, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
igus has introduced a new cable series, chainflex M, that offers a thinner cable structure and ensures lower bend radii.
The new control cables – CF880/CF881 and CF890/CF891 – are up to 20 percent thinner than previous models and have a tested service life of five million cycles.
Due to increasing automation in industry, faster and faster machines are required. Accordingly, the development of lighter and smaller cables is necessary to reduce high accelerated masses.
The new chainflex M cable series is now available as control cables with PVC (CF880/CF881) or igusPUR outer jacket (CF890/CF891), with or without a shield. The cables are suitable for short travels on simple classic machines such as stone, paper or wood processing.
