Space saving alternative to servo cables in machine tools: PUR spindle cable

Chainflex® CF270-UL-D  PUR spindle cable from igus Inc

Spindle drives are becoming larger and more efficient in the case of machining centers and machine tools. To guide higher streams of energy, larger conductor cross-sections are required.  As a result, servo cables are becoming thicker with larger bend radii, and in some cases are going beyond the permissible space of the machine tool.
