Innovative control cable for paint robots

11.05.2016

The cable is designed for use in robots particularly in drag chains for axis 7 and distinguishes itself by a high resistance against different chemicals or solvents commonly used in robotic painting applications.

SAB Bröckskes, the leading manufacturer of special cables, brings a new control cable for robot drag chain applications to the market, engineered for use in paint robots, axis 7.

In a paint shop (painting line in the automotive industry) cables get in contact with highly aggressive chemicals like coatings, solvents and lubricants. According to the manufacturer the new cable has two unique features of great importance. One of which is the robustness for drag chain applications and the other is the resistance against the specific environmental conditions associated with robotic painting applications.

Special construction

The insulation and sheath compounds are especially engineered for flame and chemical resistance. The robust construction of the cable is essential for continuous flex use in drag chains.

The latest development for robot technology of SAB Bröckskes fulfills the demanding flame test FT4 for the North American market.

Special characteristics of the cable:

-          flame retardant and self-extinguishing

-          vertical flame test FT 4

-          oil and chemical resistance

-          maximum durability under high mechanical stress

-          permanent flexibility

Tested under real operating conditions

The cable manufacturer put the construction elements and materials through extensive endurance tests under real operating conditions.

Furthermore, the materials were exposed to harsh chemicals in the laboratory to simulate the environment of the paint shop.

All tests were successfully passed and the cable was released for mass production.

The successful release for mass production underlines once again the competence of the cable specialist in robot technology. In addition to the latest development SAB offers a broad product range for the robot industry:

-          primary cables

-          control cables

-          welding gun cables

-          supply cables

-          proportional valve cable

-          bus cables

-          camera cables

-          cables for dress packs

SAB is going to present the new cable at Automatica in hall B3, booth 103 from 21st to 24th June 2016 in Munich.

Special solutions for special applications

The production possibilities of SAB range from standard products to special cables which have been developed particularly acc. to customers´ requirements.

Cable manufacturer – SAB Bröckskes is a worldwide leading manufacturer of cables and wires, cable harnessing and temperature measuring technique. More than 60 years of experience in cable manufacturing as well as in temperature measuring technique have made changed a one man business into a company with almost 500 staff members.

The strength of SAB Bröckskes is not only the manufacturing of standard cables but also the construction of special items. Every year SAB manufactures more than 1500 special cables on customer´s request.

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
