LEONI developed the High Performance Flex (HPF) cable, as a PTFE flat cable with low-friction motion for use in applications requiring millions of flex cycles at tight bend radii. Using special fluoropolymer materials, HPF cables can be designed for specific applications to exceed 150 million cycles at tight radii and be used in application with tight space requirements such as automation, material handling, or industrial robots.
Custom flat cables provide a wide variety of useful options. A broad range of individual components can be mixed and matched, allowing you to customize your design to fit your application needs. Hybrid designs can include a variety of coaxial cables and componets for flexing, twisted copper pairs, drive control, fiber optics components, data cables such as Ethernet, Cat5e, Cat6A and Cat7, optical fibers, and even tubes for air, water, ink, etc. We can also design any custom component you may require!
Maximum flexibility, optimized low-friction motion, and ultra-low particulate wear make these cables well suited for use in any environment where absolute sterility and high mobility are required. This trackless self supporting cable solution are UL approved and ISO Class 1 cleanroom rated.
