New igus servo cables with the world's smallest bend radius

13 April, 2017

The new CF29 servo cable series from igus offers possibilities for energy supply to drives, motors and industrial machines. For users with demanding requirements such as very low ambient temperatures, particularly small installation spaces or extremely heavy duty applications, the CF29 range extension is ideal.

One of several new high-end cable families designed for continuous motion in e-chains, the new CF29 chainflex servo cable series boasts a core structure optimised for motion. This, combined with a gusset-filling extruded TPE inner jacket, provides even more stability, alongside the highly flexible TPE outer jacket.

This new range is claimed to be suitable for the smallest bend radius for servo cables, down to 6.8xd. It offers a guaranteed solution in temperatures down to -35degC, so can be even used for moving applications in deep-freeze warehouses. This is made possible by the halogen-free TPE outer jacket material, which also offers almost unlimited resistance to oil.

Tested under real-world mechanical loads and temperatures

The cables have been successfully tested under real-world mechanical loads and temperatures, in a climatic test chamber within the 2750 sq m test laboratory at igus. This allows igus to guarantee a service life of 36 months for all cables, even those subject to the highest dynamics and most complex movements.

The chainflex service life calculator helps you make the ideal selection, based on your application requirements, calculating the expected service life of each cable in double strokes after you have entered the respective application parameters. This allows you to choose a cable that works reliably and cost-effectively in your applications.
