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.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
