Simple, stable and safe electrical installations with gel cable joints

Whether unplanned or part of scheduled maintenance, electricians need to connect  low-voltage power supply cables on a regular basis. Cast resin technology or heat shrinkable sleeves are frequently used to safely protect cable connections. However, the reliability of the end result largely depends on the way the materials are handled during their tricky installation. Modern gel cable joints are a time-saving and reliable alternative.

FlexTack: this is how to attach cables to curved and angled surfaces.

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

How RFID cable ties simplify industrial processes – examples and suggestions for your business

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

IP codes: how to find the right cable protection system

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.

Precise cutting without recoil: The ergonomic EVO9 cable tie tool

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.

Heat-resistant cable protection: what other industries can learn from a furnace manufacturer

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.

Helagaine: the anti-stress programme for torsion cables in wind turbines

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.

Cabling in wind turbines undergoes enormous strain because the rotor blades […] Continue reading

„Cable spaghetti“: Help to prevent that tangle of wires in the office and at home

There are no known human limits when it comes to the causes of “spaghetti syndrome”, that chaos of cables under the desk, or behind the hi-fi system. And we often dig deep into the improvisation drawer when looking for the optimum solution to resolve the mess of cables and leads. Yet for a long-term remedy it is better to rely on a well-thought out, tried-and-tested solution like the Helawrap cable cover system for bundling and protecting cable.
