The answer to that question is a plastic cable tie – but you could be forgiven for thinking of a thermos flask or a lunch box! Discover why a client in the aerospace industry asked us to supply our reusable REZ tie in a special fluorescent pink version. … Continue reading
A typical problem in the automotive industry: the integrated cable guides in the bumper are already laid down. There is only room left on the rounded and angled surfaces for additional cables for sensors. Until now, conventional rigid mounts for cable ties could not be affixed here at all, or only by using excessive layers of adhesive as a foundation. The flexible self-adhesive FlexTack mounts solve this dilemma: it sticks like a limpet, even on rounded and moderately angled surfaces. Find out in this article how to simplify your cable management on problematic surfaces and save costs with FlexTack. … Continue reading
It’s almost time to go home when the phone rings at an industrial light manufacturer: a customer’s shop floor lighting has failed. Fortunately, the manufacturer knows exactly what spare parts are needed because the lights were equipped with a radio frequency ID cable tie that allows them to be precisely identified. Urgent spare parts requests are just one scenario where day-to-day work can be simplified using HellermannTyton high-tech RFID cable ties. Discover how many industrial processes can be optimised by using them. … Continue reading
A typical Monday morning in the winter: there is gridlock in the tunnel carrying thousands of commuters into the city. Endless queues of cars are pumping out clouds of exhaust emissions. Melting snow from the vehicles drips and mixes with grit, oil and brake dust in muddy rivulets between the lanes. Humidity is high, in spite of the cold. Once the traffic starts flowing again, salty, muddy spray fills the air.
But all systems are working properly. If a vehicle caught on fire, the alarm would activate. Fortunately, the tunnel was equipped with a carefully planned cable protection system.
Read this article to discover how you can also find the correct system to protect your cables. … Continue reading
The non-stop tying and cutting of cable ties is an energy-sapping task for many assembly line workers. The jarring recoil that occurs when standard tools shear off the excess plastic band behind the tie head places great strain on the joints and ligaments. This can lead to injury and illness-related absences. Thanks to a piece of clever engineering, help is now at hand in the form of HellermannTyton’s EVO9 – a safer and more effective manual cable tie tool.
Picture a manufacturer of industrial furnaces. The new production facility is up and running, but the machines are not working as they should. Time and again there are unexpected problems and finally, production has to be stopped. Apparently, high temperatures and electromagnetic radiation (EMC) from the electrical cables are causing interference between the machines. Read this article to find out why you should include a professional cable protection system in your parts list.
Alongside photovoltaic and hydroelectric power sources, wind farms have rapidly become one of the chief suppliers of renewable energy in Germany. Today’s onshore wind turbines provide between 1.5 and 4 megawatts (MW) of power; offshore installations up to 8 MW. But as the importance of wind power increases, so too do the demands on the performance and reliability of wind turbines. HellermannTyton offers solutions that help operators meet this challenge.
Working proactively towards the needs of customers wherever they are located in the world is firmly anchored in HellermannTyton’s philosophy. We recently extended our understanding of regulatory requirements in the solar power sector to help operators of photovoltaic installations in Saudi Arabia with their labeling challenges.
The story begins in the United States back in 2011, when a change in Section 690 (Solar Photovoltaic Systems) of the National Electrical Code (NEC) significantly impacted labeling requirements in solar installations and … Continue reading
Your food and beverage production facility is state of the art. You comply with all relevant regulatory standards. Yet one day, during routine maintenance, a plastic cable tie is accidentally cut and lands somewhere on the processing line, the batch is contaminated. Suddenly your reputation for safety and hygiene is on the line. How can you avert a minor drama turning into a major crisis? … Continue reading
