Since the 1980s, the technical requirements of machines and plant manufacturers have been steadily increasing. Travels have become longer, movements quicker and bend radii smaller, which has caused unexpected consequences, such as core and jacket damage, jacket abrasion and corkscrews. igus® chose to face these challenges by working with the University of Applied Sciences in Cologne, Germany to develop cables that could withstand a high degree of mechanical stress.
After extensive tests in the igus test lab, it became clear that the cables with cores wound in bundles, short pitch lengths, high tensile strength center elements and gusset-filling extruded outer jackets exceeded expectations.
Currently, igus offers over 1,350 cables across range of various application areas. Since 2013, igus has guaranteed a service life of 36 months or up to 10 million double strokes, depending on which occurs first. To learn more about our 36 month guarantee, click below.
