In the demanding maintenance industry there is little room for second-best when it comes to cabling, where failures and time lost due to the use of unsuitable products have a direct bearing on both the viability and profitability of projects.
For this reason, companies like speciality cable manufacturers, Helukabel, have become a first choice for maintenance contractors to find the tailor-manufactured solutions for almost any cabling job imaginable. This has resulted in the company establishing itself as a preferred supplier in a wide range of industries, where its fit-for-purpose solutions are easier to install and are manufactured to perform flawlessly in the applications or which they are intended.
Fit-for-purpose cabling solutions increase reliability
In South Africa, Helukabel has also established itself as a leading supplier of end-to-end solutions, where its expertise enables the supply of custom designs for an entire project. The company also offers a high degree of customisation and specially-built cables wherever data and power transmission is a priority. Whether the requirements are for improved insulation and shielding abilities or conductivity over longer distances, engineers are increasingly turning to Helukabel to make difficult projects a reality.
According to Helukabel South Africa sales manager, Hardus van Dyk, the company has noted a strong trend in the maintenance industry towards the installation of quality, fit-for-purpose cabling, especially where there are extreme temperatures, corrosive environments, high-wear application or other challenging environments or applications. There is also a strong demand for better and faster data transmission rates and as a result speciality products are being called for to replace existing slower systems.
Aside from these applications, the company also supplies tons of cables to industries as diverse as mining, industrial, media technology and robotics. With over 30 000 product lines available, customers are sure to find a solution for their requirements. If not, the company has invested in state-of-the-art research and development facilities to enable it to develop cables to meet almost any requirements.
Local companies are also able to benefit through close cooperation between the technical teams in South African and Europe, who identify suitable products for local requirements or develop specific products to match the application. “Technical expertise is essential to supply products in this market,” adds van Dyk. “Collaboration is required, and we take a hands-on approach in order to ensure the right solutions are installed from the outset.”
The range includes industrial cables and wires, data network and bus technology, custom cables, accessories, robotics, cable handling equipment and installation tools.
Cables carry various European and other global approvals and certifications. In addition to speciality cables, Helukabel South Africa also stocks a vast range of standard cables and will also commit to keeping sufficient stock of any specified cable where recurring orders are to be placed.
“Our strength is derived from our broad range, stock availability from our high-tech logistics centre, our technical expertise and ability to supply quality German-made products at an affordable price,” concludes van Dyk. “Customers have come to rely on our ability to provide quality solutions to their cabling requirements and as a result we have quickly become a household name in the South African electrical industry.”
