chainflex® cables with small bending radii ideal for tight installation spaces

Cables with a tight bending radius for a range of dynamic applications

Traditional cables with copper conductors quickly reach their mechanical limit in applications with tight bending radii. chainflex® cables, however, are engineered with a bending-resistant design and excellent mechanical properties. The sheath materials of chainflex® are highly flexible and abrasion-resistant, providing a guaranteed extended service life for a high number of strokes and the smallest bending radii.  Learn more about the advantages of chainflex® cables here.
  • All chainflex® cables are rigorously tested in our 41,000 sq. ft. test lab in Cologne, Germany to guarantee 2 billion test cycles per year.
  • UL-verified with up to 4 year guarantee
  • Extended service life
  • Available from stock in any quantity with no minimum length requirement
