Today’s process-automation equipment is designed to operate at a speedier pace than the equipment that came before. It’s equipped with sensors and machine learning capabilities and undergoes many different conditions. This new environment can cause traditional cable stress and require new cable-management solutions.
German-based energy and data management provider, Leoni, is now offering a cable solution that is suitable for industrial robots. Their new line of cables is flexible, lightweight and made to endure repetitive processes, in turn increasing cable lifetime and reducing downtime.
With the LEONI B-Flex P³, the company now offers a flexible, slip-resistant attachment solution for industrial robots especially for the Food and Beverage, Pharmaceutical, and globally, for the General Industry; serving picking, packing, and palletizing applications. This means that the hose and cable package can be attached to the robot with easy-to-install, flexible holders.
The basic principle behind the LEONI B-Flex P³ solution consists of two components; the hook-and-loop straps and the flexible round or flat holders. The hook-and-loop strap is threaded into the matching insertion slots on the holder for installation on the robot. The holders are positioned in the chosen location on the robot and the dress pack is inserted between the hook-and-loop strap and the holder. As a last step, the hook-and-loop strap needs to be pulled tight and closed.
This quick and simple tool-less installation is just one of the advantages of this solution. LEONI B-Flex P³ can also be used on diverse surfaces, sections, and circumferences without the risk of slippage. The mounting solution is also lightweight and has very few protrusions thanks to its low-profile design. In addition, it is based on very high reliable components as all of them are based on thousands of dress packages installed in different field of industries, most particularly Automotive, which is highly demanding on robot movements and it is absolutely maintenance-free.
