In a time of constantly changing economic conditions, one thing towers above everything else: trust and safety. For business relationships, sales and ultimately for the use of industrial goods. For both sides, the certification of the chainflex brand promise and the concomitant documented quality of machines, components and parts make a contribution to more reliability that should not be underestimated.
Customers around the world want a higher level of transparency from the brands of their choice. The correctness of a marketing promise is scrutinised with independent and scientifically based assessments. Thus UL evaluates the chainflex brand promise with scientific rigour, separating fact from fantasy for the user.
The unique UL test seal (Number B129699) is an individual identifier that allows the purchaser to look up more information online about the specific chainflex® product promise verified by UL. This makes it easy for the customer to decide on chainflex.
We issue a 36-month guarantee on our cables with confidence, as we are able to make reliable predictions about the service life of our cables due to over 30 years of experience in our 3,800m² test laboratory and 700 concurrently undertaken experiments.
igus is now the first German firm to have this promise validated for chainflex cables. In a complex certification process, the US "Underwriters Laboratories" institute confirmed the accuracy of the "igus® 36-month chainflex® cable guarantee and service life calculator based on two billion test cycles per year" promise. This makes the Cologne-based company the first in Europe to have the veracity of an advertising statement confirmed by a testing institution. In future, every chainflex® cable that leaves the factory anywhere in the world will be identified by the UL marketing label with its unique number (B129699), referring to igus®.
A total of 1044 of the over 1350 cables in the portfolio and available from stock, already have classic UL approval. This is a prerequisite for the smooth commissioning of plant in the USA. The export of plant to America will therefore run smoothly. The combination of UL approval and the UL marketing label ensures smooth exports twice over.
These statements create reliability and planning security for your entire investment process; all the more so now that they have been confirmed by an external body! Try it out yourself online with the certified service life calculation for chainflex® cables:
The chainflex cables are cables for moving applications in energy chains or for robot applications - all dependable with 36-month guarantee and up to 40 million cycles. The chainflex cables work flawlessly with high speeds and accelerations, long travels as well as very extreme ambient conditions.
The chainflex laboratory concentrates on special experiments and tests that are not covered by the relevant normal standards and laboratories, but are absolutely necessary for determining the service life and functional capability of moving cables in the e-chain. This has now been confirmed again by UL.
