chainflex® cables are rigorously tested to earn a UL-verified mark based on our 4 year guarantee, lifetime calculator, and batch testing process

Our cables are continuously tested for millions of cycles to ensure higher performance and longer service life, up to 10 million double strokes.  igus® has been testing the service life of chainflex® cables for over 20 years in their 41,000 sq. ft. test laboratory located at their headquarters in Cologne, Germany.  In particular, the testing process is unique because of the extremely rigorous, holistic and systematic processes and batch testing that is applied to all cables in the test lab
Because of these rigorous tests, igus® can provide customers with the predicted durability of every chainflex® cable, with a UL-verified 4 year guarantee.  Learn more about the UL Test Process Verification.
