100% testing thanks to industrial harnessing

The world's No. 1 when it comes to ready-to-connect drive cables for use in energy chains

Harnessed and ready-to-connect cables in energy chains or connected to robots need special properties if they are to function reliably over a long period of time in spite of large cycle numbers, high speeds, rates of acceleration and challenging ambient conditions. The chainflex® cables used for readycable® products are intensively tested in the company's own 2,750 m² test laboratory, the largest of its kind in the industry. The harnessed readycable® cables guarantee a long service life thanks to extensive tests and quality inspections in the company's own laboratory and more than 25 years experience in the manufacture and harnessing of cables.
The igus® readycable® range extends from a large variety of cables in acc. with the standards of different manufacturers such as Siemens, SEW or Beckhoff, to cables for video/vision equipment and harnessed Ethernet cables up to CAT7.
