  • 6 Common Cable Failure Modes
    torsional forces are released during operation due to incorrect cable configuration, pitch length and pitch direction. Cables that are constructed in layers rather than bundled are more susceptible. Jacket abrasion: Jacket abrasion occurs when the outer jacket of a cable wears through to the underlying
  • Accessorize Your Cable Carrier
    For a design engineer, specifying the best cable carrier for a particular application is an important part of the design process. There are a variety of different options available, but once you have settled on a cable carrier, there is a crucial next step: choosing accessories. Below are some
  • 7 cable management mistakes to avoid
    caught on one another and bind together, cable jacket wear can be significantly increased. There is also more chance of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) when power cables and data cables are positioned close together. As a rule, we recommend you space power and data cables as far apart as possible
  • Plastic Versus Steel Cable Carriers
    , up to 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit and higher. This was previously only possible with steel chains. igus® also recently unveiled the largest plastic cable carrier in the world in the form of E4.350 (pictured: right). Energy Chain® E4.350 is wear proof, maintenance free and resistant to seawater
  • Gliding, Long Travel Cable Carrier Applications
    ® recommends the use of polymer glide bars, because they are optimally matched to its cable carrier material and achieve the lowest values in terms of friction, noise and wear. Important: When assembling the trough parts, the following points must be given particular attention: Properly align all trough parts
  • The Cable Distribution Rules You Need to Obey
    The key advantage of a cable carrier is that bus and motor cables, pneumatics, electrics and hydraulics can all be guided safely in one system. However, correctly arranging each cable and hose within your chosen cable carrier according to the recommended spacing requirements is vital if you want
  • The Less-Is-More Approach to Robotic Cable Management
    Cable management has come into the limelight more and more because machine reliability has increased dramatically in recent years, even though robots have grown more complex. However, the methods used to attach and guide cables have not quite followed suit. Since the 1960s, cable management
  • The Basics Behind ESD Applications Using Cable Carriers
    long-term conductivity. As these pins and bores wear and lose contact at points, an intermittent connection occurs. Our unique System E6 cable carriers do not rely on a pin and bore connection. Instead, they feature abrasion-resistant connector strips. These strips enable a continuous, long-term
  • Out of the Frying Pan and Onto the Cable - Teflon (R) and other Fluoropolymers (.pdf)
    fluoropolymers possess special electrical properties and have a high resistance to solvents, acids and bases.These and other characteristics make fluoropolymers ideal materials used in the manufacture of wire and cable products. Out of the Frying Pan and onto the Cable. Teflon® and Other Fluoropolymers
  • Cable Carriers Smooth Machine Motion
    Following guidelines for cable and hose carriers helps streamline the selection process. Cable carriers come in many design configurations, sizes, and materials. They are typically assembled from off-the-shelf components, allowing manufacturers to quickly and economically tailor a design
