Optimised stranded wire and multiple braiding absorbs forces
The entire chainflex® product range was developed from the ground up for use in energy chains. For this reason, only optimised strands are used in the individual conductors. These strands are neither too thin nor too thick. The individual conductors are wrapped into a cable in a way that prevents "corkscrews" and is capable of optimally absorbing the forces that occur. This is attained through short pitch of the strands and, for twelve of more conductors, through what is known as braiding in bundles, in which the conductors are first braided in a short pitch and the resulting bundles are, in turn, braided to make a complete structure. This structure is created around a tensile stress-resistant centre element. This may sound overly elaborate, but it is worth the effort. The braiding remains stable, even at the highest bending stress and with high dynamics. All showcased by the impressive demonstration of chainflex® cables in use in Hekuma systems.
