Research & Development

Our design engineers develop and test new cables and wires up to market entry

We develop optimal cable solutions for our customers. The main focus of our products is on flexible cables for diverse applications. Our customers expect extreme resistance to chemical, electrical and mechanical stresses, small bending radii, a high number of flexing cycles and an outstanding lifespan. Our engineers design cables that consistently meet and exceed these demands.

New products are tested in the state-of-the-art test center in Windsbach to ensure their suitability for use and readiness for market entry. Our stringent quality standards are also upheld with measurements and random sample checks carried out during production.

HELUKABEL® is at the forefront of the of the cable and wire industry with new and unique cable designs. As technology improves, we are constantly being challenged to invent top-of-the-line products that meet our customers’ constantly changing requirements.

Our Analysis and Testing Equipment

Cable Track Test Equipment

Rigorously tests products used in cable tracks that move short, medium and long distances at slow and fast speeds.

Test Tower for Wind Power Cables

The torison resistnace of all wind power cables is tested for 18,000 cycles in the custom-built HELUKABEL® 26-ft. test tower.

Fire Test Equipment

We regularly conduct fire tests in accordance with international standards such as UL/CSA, VDE, and HAR.

Scrape-Off Equipment

The durability of the outer jacket is tested for abrasion resistance in the scrape-off test.
