Cutting cable stripping time in half

Cutting cable stripping time in half igus UK, a leading expert in dynamic cabling for energy chains, has devised an intelligent solution to strip back long lengths of cable both quickly and easily. By integrating a tear strip into the cable jacket, CFRIP simplifies the stripping back of the cables, especially for those with gusset-filled extruded jackets, without damaging the cores.

With just a few steps, the outer jacket can be opened like a zipper to the desired length by simply pulling the special CFRIP tear strip. Electrical engineers and panel fitters can not only save 50% of the cable stripping time typically required using conventional methods, but also avoid the need for additional cable stripping tools. The cables are also designed in such a way that the integrated tear strip doesn't damage the outer jacket or cores during operation.

"At igus we're continually developing products that will enable our customers to work efficiently," says Justin Leonard, director at igus UK.  "This simple method of stripping cable jackets is a neat solution for today's electrical engineers, making it much faster to take off cable jackets and allowing them to get the job done more quickly than before."

igus CFRIP technology is offered in the chainflex CF5 PVC control cable family, where the tear strip is in the outer jacket, and in the chainflex CF6 shielded version, where the tear strip is in the inner jacket. Other types of chainflex cable integrating CFRIP technology are being considered.

igus chainflex continuous flex cables are available with no minimum order quantities, cutting charges or copper surcharge.
