Control cables from chainflex® with low bend radii for high-speeds

Chainflex® continuous-flex control cables are intended for use within cable carriers moving at high speeds and accelerations. They are UV-resistant, flame-retardant, halogen-free, and can withstand very high, or extremely low, temperatures. They are available as shielded or unshielded, with a choice of PVC, PUR, and TPE outer jackets.
chainflex® flexible control cables have been specially developed to maintain a low bend radii in extreme environments and are ideal for the stringent demands of industry, plant engineering and mechanical engineering. All chainflex® control cables have been rigorously tested  while installed within e-chain® cable carriers in our test lab to ensure that they can withstand millions of cycles. The strict test criteria applied within the igus® test laboratory ensure that all chainflex® cables have a long service life and are of the highest quality. Depending on the control cable type, cables are certified and approved for specific applications (CE, NFPA, CEI, and many others) and can be used at high speeds or for extreme temperatures.

All chainflex® cables come with our up to 4 year gurarantee and can reduce your costs by up to 64.7% while maintaining identical, if not longer service life. To learn more about your potential savings and receive a free quote, simply fill out the form with your current cable types and application.
