Complete Line of Arrow Hart Wire Mesh Grips from Cooper Wiring Devices Ideal for Industrial Applications

Broad range of grips available for strain relief, pulling and support available

PEACHTREE CITY, GA, October 9, 2012 - Cooper Wiring Devices, a leading electrical wiring device manufacturer for industrial, commercial and residential applications, offers a complete line of Arrow Hart™ Wire Mesh grips built tough for industrial applications. Including solutions designed specifically for strain relief, pulling and support, Arrow Hart products are available in a range of styles and sizes to serve nearly any industrial cable protection need.

Strain relief grips from Arrow Hart are used to connect cable enclosures and industrial equipment and are available with stainless steel mesh and an aluminum body for corrosion resistance. Options are also available with double- or single-weave construction to help absorb direct force on termination points and to resist flexing and binding, effectively eliminating strain on the cable. Strain relief solutions are ideal for use where cable or cord is exposed to moisture or where frequent washdowns occur. Also available are options for use in hazardous locations both indoor and outdoor.

Arrow Hart also offers a complete line of support grips. Our support grips are designed to hold and support single and multiple cables, hose and tubing. These durable products are available in a variety of connection types and cable ranges as well as open and closed mesh. Produced from high quality, non-magnetic, tin coated bronze, all solutions provide superior corrosion resistance and help absorb strain from vibration, expansion, contraction and flexing.

Also available from Arrow Hart is a complete line of pulling grips. Ranging from light to heavy duty, pulling grips serve as a reusable tool for pulling cables, wires and/or rope in overhead and underground cable pulls. Pulling grips are specifically designed to protect cable from abrasion and help guide it through bends and rough surfaces. Arrow Hart offers single and multi-weave options made of either tinned-bronze wire or galvanized steel depending on load.

"Our complete line of Arrow Hart Wire Mesh Grips is built tough for industrial applications," said Laura Ulz, President of Cooper Wiring Devices. "Including strain, support and pulling grips, we offer one of the widest selections available on the market. By choosing proven solutions from Arrow Hart, our end-users can feel confident that our field-tested products can handle any job."

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
