Hard-wearing cables for forklifts

chainflex® tested in roller applications

chainflex® cables from igus® are designed specifically for moving applications. Due to the design features such as gusset-filling extruded outer jacket, highly abrasion-resistant materials, optimised pitch lengths and so on, chainflex® cables are suitable for energy chain, twisting and rolling applications, depending on the series.
In the igus® test laboratory spread over an area of 2,750 m² , chainflex® cables run through over 600 tests every year with more than 2 billion test cycles.
