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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
