igus UK is introducing a new service chainflex CC, whereby custom cables are now available with a minimum length of 300m and are delivered within 3 weeks. As part of the service, igus is also launching a new online configurator where customers can configure and order their individual desired cables within a few minutes. chainflex CC presents an affordable option enabling electrical and design engineers to reduce time and improve the performance of their end product.
There are many tailor-made cables available on the market, but until now such cables are only available with long delivery times of up to 20 weeks, and they are often costly with minimum length orders from 1000m. However, for customers with tight time and cost planning, this can often lead to using a standard cable that does not fully meet the specific guidelines. As a result, such compromises can affect the durability and performance of their end-product.
With chainflex CC igus can deliver short cable lengths with a wide variety of jackets for every application. These include special jacket colours that conform to the design of the machine, special combinations of shielding, jacket material and stranding. Above all, igus can deliver faster than market standard.
Ordering is simple with the new chainflex CC configurator, which is available at www.igus.eu/chainflexCC. The online tool is easy to use and does not require prior registration. The user can simply select from a variety of standardised cable and construction types, allowing almost any unlimited option. In addition, the bespoke cable can be completed with individual printing. The cable can be ordered easily online and 3 weeks later the ready-made cable is completed. In case the desired cable cannot be found within the scope of the combinations, a request can be sent to igus’ chainflex team via a click of the mouse.
Justin Leonard, director at igus, says: “At igus, we pride ourselves on making it easy for our customers to work with us and I’m delighted we can now offer affordable bespoke cables in just a few weeks. We have more than 950 chainflex cables in the range to meet all customer requirements and each is intensively tested in igus’ laboratory for reliability in the most arduous environments. Customers can be assured of the high quality and performance in demanding applications.”
igus chainflex continuous flex cables are available with no minimum order quantities, cutting charges or copper surcharge. For more information about chainflex CC visit the website at: www.igus.co.uk.
