EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. — igus® Inc. has published a new 2009 catalog for its Chainflex® continuous-flex cables, which are specifically designed for demanding high-flex applications on all types of automated machinery. The continuous-flex cable book features an easy-to-use quick reference guide, application examples from a wide range of industries and details on the latest Chainflex cables.
The new catalog’s reference guide makes it easy to select a continuous-flex cable by highlighting key features, such as jacket types, temperatures limits, price indexes, and maximum bending radii.
The catalog also offers information about new Chainflex cables, including CF Robot, a shielded cable for applications involving high levels of torsion, Firewire cables for long distance machine vision applications, and cables specifically designed for USB applications.
