Continuous-flex Cables with No Minimum Order or Cut Charges
igus Inc. Posted 07/07/2011igus offers its Chainflex continuous-flex cables at any length
East Providence, RI - igus®’ Chainflex® continuous-flex cables were first developed in 1989 with the goal of eliminating failures such as corkscrewing, core ruptures and insulation damage. Fast forward 23 years, igus is still offering cables for high-cycle applications with no-minimum order requirement and no cut charges (up to 10 cuts of the same part number). While many cable suppliers require 250-foot, 500-foot, or even 1,000-foot minimums, igus offers its entire line of Chainflex cables at any length for customers large and small.
“By offering our Chainflex cables at any length without cut charges, igus is able to meet the needs of a wide variety of customers. We understand not every application requires thousands, or even hundreds, of feet of cable and that cut charges add unexpected costs. Our customers are often surprised, but we’ve always had this policy in place and will continue to sell all of our Chainflex cables without requiring a minimum order,” says Don Nester, Chainflex product manager for igus.
Chainflex continuous-flex cables can handle tight bending radii as small as four times the outer cable diameter in dynamic applications and have been tested to validate service life over time. They are ideal for use in Energy Chain® cable carriers. The Chainflex range includes control, data, bus, position feedback, fiber optic, coax, servo, power and robot cables.
