Shielded robot cable handles applications involving high levels of torsion. Chainflexâ€šÃ‚Â® CF Robot is for both robotic and non-robotic applications. In contrast to conventional braided copper shields, which are counter-wound, a torsion-resistant tin-plated copper shield sheath is used with CF Robot.
The forces affected on the cable by any torsional movement are largely absorbed by sliding and buffer elements between the sheath, shield and insulation. The design prevents early failure of the shield. The outer sheath material is a high-grade TPE mixture with particularly good wear properties. The twistable cable has been tested through more than three million torsional movements to +/- 270 degrees.
