Material Handling

Material handling equipment requires durable and reliable cable systems that can handle the repetitive movements found in automated machines and robots to ensure goods are packaged, filled, assembled, or moved safely and securely.

Material handling involves many different facets of the automation industry such as automated guided vehicles, storage and retrieval systems, conveyor systems, as well as palletizing and sorting systems. Its use in industries such as automotive, mining, food and beverage, hospitals, medicals, and e-commerce make it a fixture in industrial applications.

Our strengths are primarily in the continuous-flex and high-performance cable market. Our customers want cables that will go in cable tracks and last for 10 million cycles, go on robots and twist for 10 million cycles, and are flexible enough with the right UL approvals to be installed in very tight spaces or very severe environments and extreme temperatures.

We look forward to assisting you in identifying the best products for your specific application and to answer any questions you might have. Call +49 7150 9209-0 or email us: info@helukabel.de

Below you will find examples of cables and wires for material handling:

JZ-602 RC-PUR

These cables are used for flexible use for medium mechanical stresses with free movement without tensile stress or forced movements in dry, moist, wet rooms and outdoor. These special cables for drag chains are used for permanent flexible applications in machineries, machine tools, robot technics, for movable automated machinery parts. For applications which go beyond standard solutions (for example for composting appliances or high shelf conveyors with extremely high processing speeds etc.) we recommend for our especially developed enquiry sheet for energy guiding systems. Before installation in cable trays please read the instructions. Further technical details see selection table for drag chain cables, see lead text.

RC = Robotics Cable

These special cables for drag chains are used for permanent flexible applications in machineries, machine tools, robot technics, for movable automated machinery parts. The dense screening assures disturbance-free transmission of all signals and impulses. An ideal disturbance-free control cable for the above applications. For applications which go beyond standard solutions we recommend for our especially developed enquiry sheet for energy guiding systems. Before installation in cable trays please read the instructions. Further technical details see selection table for drag chain cables, see lead text.

EMC = Electromagnetic compatibillity. To optimize the EMC features we recommend a large round contact of the copper braiding on both ends.
