Lower Cost Cables, Fully Guaranteed with the New Chainflex M Line from igus

igus, a leader in the development and testing of cable management systems and continuous-flexing cables, has announced the release of their Chainflex M line of lower-cost cables.

East Providence, Rhode Island June 18, 2015


Tested, safe, yet low in price - this is the promise from igus with their newest line of Chainflex cables. From control, servo motor, and measuring system cables, to data, power, and bus cables, Chainflex M offers a full cable range, all designed specifically for continuous-flexing applications; at about 40% lower cost than traditional Chainflex cables.

The standard line of Chainflex cables is tested and guaranteed for high speeds, high cycles, and demanding environments, yet many applications do not require such high standards of their cables. Now, with Chainflex M, manufacturers have the option of having the flexible reliability of Chainflex, but with a lower cost. Guaranteed for up to 5 million cycles, Chainflex M cables are in the same price range as cables for non-flexing applications.

All Chainflex cables are tested in igus in-house laboratory in Cologne, Germany, where 2 billion test cycles are carried out each year, including in true-to-life application settings. There are three main advantages for Chainflex M users: tested reliability, including a guarantee commitment, a competitive price, and the flexibility to fit perfectly into Energy Chain cable carrier systems.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
