Innovative flex cable technology

Continuous-flex cables running inside energy chains must withstand millions of movement cycles if unscheduled shutdowns are to be avoided. Within the industry's largest test laboratory, igus® tests all its products in order to ensure that the materials and structure of its cable are optimally matched to each other and are thus able to ensure uninterrupted durability.

Predictable cable service life

With the chainflex® cable service life calculator, you may easily and quickly calculate the expected service life of chainflex® cables specifically for your application.
