Application examples of our customers

Tested for tightness and service life perfect for woodworking machinery

Leak test in a chip drum Having products that prevent ant chips and swarf into a machine is invaluable and thanks to its modular design the e-tube is ideal. This video shows the chain being put in real life applications to be thoroughly tested. 
Endurance tests of moving cables Continuous testing is crucial and in order to be able to offer up to 36 month guaranatees on our chainflex® cables, testing is key. With real life applications as well as enduring vigirous testing, we know what our cables can do.
