Concrete manufacturing cable carrier solution

No failures for 10 years


If a machine breaks down in this concrete factory, the entire production line usually has to be shutdown until repair work have been completed. If this takes longer, due to extensive cable damage, all the concrete must be removed from the machines before it hardens.

This means that any machine components should be extremely durable, which was not the case with the cables the factory had previously been using. Since switching to chainflex® continuous flex TPE control cables, CF9 and CF10, service life has risen from a maximum of 1 year without failure to 10 years.
