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.
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.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
