igus has developed two lightweight single core motor cables, chainflex CF430.D and CF440 types (unshielded and shielded) that offer up to 40 % weight saving in moving energy chain applications. In this way, the use of smaller e-chains can reduce cost and enhance both the energy efficiency and the service life of energy chain systems. As for all chainflex cables, the company offers a unique 36-month warranty for its durability. By the use of a special stranded conductor, the cables are up to 40 % lighter than standard copper cables. Depending on the cable length and cross-section, the savings potential of the new motor cables can be up to several tonnes, offering a considerable saving on required drive force. The outer jacket is made of a high-quality mix of thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) making them ideal for extremely high loads even at low temperatures and for outdoor use.
