ABB Adaptaflex deliver flexible cable protection solutions to Machine Tool & OEM businesses

Machine tool and OEM businesses are driven by the need to deliver the best lean manufacturing processes. To achieve this, every piece of equipment is pushed for greater efficiency by working faster and more intensely.

As a result, any conduit system installed for use in these applications will need to provide excellent mechanical strength, flexibility and abrasion resistance. By choosing such a solution, businesses can provide the best possible protection for all moving parts.

In this demanding environment of both dynamic and static applications where any downtime to manufacturing can prove costly, it is essential that any cable management products continue to deliver performance in areas where ingress protection as well as resistance to oils and chemicals is paramount. For this reason Adaptaflex has developed a wide range of liquid tight systems to ensure critical wiring is kept protected under testing conditions.

Technology is increasingly being used in modern machine tools and the need to interface conduit to multipin-connectors is escalating. Nylon systems continue to gain popularity in this sector due to their excellent performance, flexibility and low installed cost benefits. Through offering a wide range of both metallic and non-metallic solutions, Adaptaflex can meet all of these needs.
