Igus offers 569 cables with the integrated tear strip

The chainflex cables with the CFRIP tear strip can be easily opened like a zip fastener. This allows users to save up to 50 per cent of the time when stripping cable jackets, which is especially useful in long lengths such as in control panels. In this way, the specially developed high tensile strength plastic thread – never damages the cores, and this has already be proven by igus in extensive testing in the 2,750 square metre test laboratory, the largest in the industry having. 
This unique stripping system for moving cables was awarded the IF product design award in 2016 for its innovative function and is increasingly being used in more and more chainflex cables from igus. At the 2016 Hannover Messe the motion plastics specialist has yet again expanded its product range and now offers a total of 569 cables with the integrated tear strip, which ranges from cables for control and measurement systems up to motor and servo cables from stock, and – as for all chainflex cables – a service life of 36 months is guaranteed.
To simplify working with chainflex cables even further, igus now provides a simple but useful tool. “After many customer requests, they developed a tool with which a chainflex CFRIP cable can be opened easily by hand,” explains Rainer Rossel, head of chainflex division at Igus.  “Just like putting on a thimble, the user can easily grab the tear strip and pull until the cable is stripped back to the desired length – and the thread doesn’t hurt your hand while stripping.”
