igus introduces easy stripping to its chainflex rangeigus UK is expanding its chainflex cable range by 230 types. The new cables are available with igus’ popular CFRIP cable stripping technology and have been introduced following customer demand. As a result, electrical engineers now have more choice and can reduce the time it takes to strip back long lengths of a variety of cables by up to 50 per cent, therefore saving costs associated with installation.

The clever feature of chainflex CFRIP cables is an integrated cord contained within either the inner or outer jacket (depending on which type is specified). When pulled, the cord tears open the cable jacket just like a zipper and there is no need for extra stripping tools.

igus’ cables are tested in real-world applications and environments, and even after millions of cycles in daily operation the integrated strip will not damage the outer jacket or cores. CFRIP cables are suitable for a variety of high-load applications and are available from stock in 24 hours.
