To solver this issue, the continuous-flex cable experts at igus have developed the new, high tensile CFSPECIAL.182.060 bus cable for Profinet. The new cable’s special structure includes integrated strain relief elements which allow the cable to support its own weight in high-tensile or hanging applications. Now, hanging Profinet applications over 100 meters are possible, making igus the only manufacturer of both CAT5e and Profinet cables for high tensile forces. chainflex Profinet and other bus cables for extremely low bend radii are also available, covering a huge range of applications.
Tested and guaranteed specialized cables
The new CFSPECIAL.182.060 cable has a shielded design, featuring an abrasion-resistant PUR outer jacket with integrated strain relief. The cable is resistant to oil, coolants, hydrolysis, and microbes. The cable is also resistant against impacts, and is 100% free of PVC and halogen. Like all chainflex continuous-flex cables, the CFSPECIAL.182.060 has been extensively tested in the massive igus test lab in Cologne, Germany. These test results allow for lifetime calculation based on application criteria, as well as a full cable guarantee for up to 10 million cycles of reliable data transfer.

The Less is More Approach to Robotic Cable Management
The less is more approach to cable management is a best practice that robotics engineers and integrators can apply. It centers on designing cable management systems for six-axis robots including cables, hose, tubing, carrier, and connectors in three separate sections.
Plastic Bushings for the Automotive Industry
Plastic bushings can be used in numerous automotive applications, from simple car-seat systems, to under-the-hood applications subject to high thermal stress. Convertible tops, hinges, seats, chassis, windshield wipers, steering systems, foot pedals, transmissions, throttle bodies, turbochargers, and engine compartments are other areas in which these bearings can be used.
Say Goodbye to Seizing
Bearings must be able to withstand a high amount of wear, particularly in heavy-duty, industrial applications in the construction or agricultural industries. For these types of applications, many designers are surprised to learn that plastic bearings can be an ideal alternative for metal bearings for a number of reasons.
