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.

Innsbruck quantum physicists have constructed a diode for magnetic fields and then tested it in the laboratory. The device, developed by the research groups led by the theorist Oriol Romero-Isart and the experimental physicist Gerhard Kirchmair, could open up a number of new applications.
Electric diodes are essential electronic components that conduct electricity in one direction but prevent conduction in the opposite one. They are found at the...

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
