LAPP’s ÖLFLEX®, ETHERLINE®, and UNITRONIC® continuous flexing cables play an integral role in high-speed robotics applications, such as multi-axis articulated arm, Cartesian and SCARA robots. At LAPP, we design and manufacture a full range of high-flex, high-torsion, abrasion resistant cables, connector and cable tracks for static, dynamic and torsional robots that can reliably transmit power, control, data, and monitoring signals— while withstanding repetitive movements, extreme twisting and bending. As one of the world’s premier robotic cable carriers, we offer a wide range of connectivity solutions for demanding robotics applications. High-flex cables for static, dynamic and torsional robots - High-torsion Ethernet cables - Continuous-flex (FD) cables and cable chain - Custom ÖLFLEX® CONNECT assemblies - Non-metallic cable glands for fast assembly and reliable connections - Circular and rectangular connectors - Abrasion-resistant, continuous-flex conduits.

Oil- and Abrasion-Resistant Cable for Industrial Machine tools

POSTED 01/25/2017

ÖLFLEX® 409 P PUR control cableLAPP's ÖLFLEX® 409 P PUR control cable for oil- and abrasion-resistant industrial machine tools and appliances is a special interstice filling functional layer on a special PVC base enables more efficient and reliable stripping and ensures improved stripping characteristics, reduction of damage to core insulation, less subsequent manual processing and reduced material waste – compared to common PUR jacketed cables. This results in time and costs savings.

Thanks to a robust polyurethane outer sheath, this cable delivers increased durability under harsh conditions. ÖLFLEX® 409 P is also resistant to contact with many mineral oil-based lubricants, diluted acids, aqueous alkaline solutions and other chemical media.

In addition, this cable is made up of a fine-wire, bare copper conductor, special PVC core insulation, twisted-layer cores and a special outer sheath of polyurethane with an interstitial functional layer.

Other technical features include:

  • Intermittent flexing temperature range from -5 to 70°C
  • Fixed installation temperature range from -40 to 80°C
  • Test voltage: 4000 V
  • Minimum bending radius:
    • Flexible use: 12.5 x outer diameter
    • Fixed installation: 4 x outer diameter
