Automation – the way to go

September 2017 Enclosures, Cabling & Connectors

Speciality cable manufacturer, Helukabel, is gaining global recognition for its wide range of automation cables, which have been specially designed for optimal performance on sophisticated automation equipment.

Automation cable systems are unique in that they require precision manufacture that not only ensures the integrity of information relayed, and current transported, but also need to be durable and reliable to handle the high mechanical stress and repetitive movements often associated with automated processes.

In South Africa, there is an increased move towards automation as stricter standards require ever tighter tolerances, while at the same time the market requires higher volumes and keener pricing. It is therefore essential that cabling systems, which effectively carry the lifeblood of an automation project, are of the highest quality and fit for purpose.

According to Helukabel South Africa sales manager, Hardus van Dyk, automation is becoming commonplace in manufacturing, be it packaging, food and beverage processing, automotive, pharmaceuticals and a host of other production lines.

“Our high-quality cables and cable accessories guarantee durable and reliable systems,” he adds. “Pre-assembled servo, motor and feedback cables are also available for the world’s leading drive system manufacturers and these offer an economical alternative to track cables. In addition, our technical teams are more than happy to assist with the design and specification of cable system solutions to suite customers own unique requirements.”

Pre-assembled cables include:

• Siemens drive systems.

• Rexroth drive systems.

• Lenze drive systems.

• SEW-Eurodrive drive systems.

• Heidenhain drive systems.

• Robot cables.

• Connecting cables.

• Extensions and supply cables.

Helukabel, a German company with manufacturing centres across the globe, sets itself apart by investing heavily in research and development so that it can bring cables to market that add new dimensions of quality and easy to install convenience. All cables are manufactured to the highest specifications and in accordance with international standards.
