A fabrication company in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire had a problem with cables dragging on the floor and becoming damaged whenever the safety doors on their machines went back and forth. Originally we were asked to quote for 3core 1.5mm² PVC sheathed cable, but after learning how many cables the customer was replacing on a yearly basis there had to be a better option! This is when the idea of curly (coiled) cable came to mind, the cable could extend and retract back to its original length as the doors opened and closed, therefore keeping it off the floor. Originally the customer was looking to fit new cables to two of their 19 machines but liked the idea so much that they are sampling the cables on 10 machines to start with, if all goes well the other 9 machines will be fitted with new cables by the end of the summer. For this customer’s particular requirement, we supplied 10 HOFR (Heat and Oil resistant and Flame Retardant) sheathed cables at 50cm un-extended with 20cm bare tails allowing the customer to hard wire or put plugs and sockets on the ends.
