igus has expanded its range of drive cables with its chainflex M cables and provides these as harnessed options in required lengths, with centimetre accuracy, including connectors. This economy cable range is suitable for moving applications with medium duty for up to five million double strokes, and is about 60 percent cheaper.
The ready-to-connect cables are delivered for immediate use – this is the simple principle of harnessed 'readycable' cables, which igus offers from 1 piece and in desired length without any minimum quantity surcharge. To the more than 4,000 harnessed chainflex cables from igus is added the combination of low-priced chainflex M cables with matching connectors, according to 24 manufacturer standards.
Around 60 percent cheaper than other igus catalogue cables and also with a guaranteed service life of 36 months. "The pre-assembled chainflex M cables offer a cost-effective solution that ideally satisfies applications with moderate requirements in terms of duty cycles as well as speeds and acceleration," explains Christian Stremlau, head of readychain and readycable at igus. "Users can now use this extended choice to make a more suitable choice of the cheapest cable that works for their application."
The highest quality standards are achieved by the fact that a large proportion of the cable assembly is done by machine. This leads to a higher rate of readycable production and more process reliability in the applications. Using the new readycable finder 2.0 ( www.igus.eu/readycable-finder) it is very easy to find the right products. Here, customers can choose the right drive cables, specify the desired length, and then order. For an even easier configuration, the matching cables from igus are shown immediately after entering the motor manufacturer's part number.
