German cable and wire manufacturer SAB Bröckskes GmbH & Co. KG has introduced a new control cable for use in robotic paint applications.

The cable is designed for use in robot drag chain applications, particularly in drag chains for axis 7, and boasts a high resistance to chemicals and solvents commonly used in robotic painting applications, the company claims.

In a paint shop, such as those in the automotive industry, the manufacturer explains, cables come into contact with highly aggressive chemicals like coatings, solvents and lubricants.

The cable boasts a high resistance to chemicals and solvents commonly used in robotic painting applications.

The insulation and sheath compounds of the cable were specifically engineered for flame and chemical resistance, it adds. It also fulfills the demanding flame test FT4 for the North American market, according to the company.

The new cable features a robust construction, essential for continuous flex use in drag chain applications, the company notes, giving it maximum durability under high mechanical stress.

The cable manufacturer put the construction elements and materials through extensive endurance tests under real operating conditions, it says. It also exposed them to harsh chemicals in the laboratory to simulate the environment of the paint shop in order to confirm their durability in service.
