Safer lighting installation in offices and industrial buildings

The trend towards lighting with compact fluorescent lamps and LED downlights is constantly growing in offices large buildings. At the same time, planners are turning their attention to the overall energy efficiency of the entire building. Hence, installers increasingly encounter installation challenges from insulation and vapour barriers in areas where the lights are planned. Irrespective of the specific type of illumination selected, care must be taken that all lights are properly installed. Read here how downlight covers are an ideal solution for safe lighting installations. […] Continue reading

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.

„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.

Metal ties withstand short circuit test to cable cleat standard

cable cleats for electrical installation, MBT ties restraining cables trefoil formation, short circuit fault, cable clamps Electrical short circuits unleash a tremendously destructive force. The risk of injury and damage from flailing cables is especially high when single-core power cables are laid in trefoil formation.

Cable cleats are the most commonly used protective equipment to fix low and medium voltage cables in industrial electrical installations.

But tests on HellermannTyton’s stainless steel cable ties conducted by the NEFI High Power Laboratory in Norway demonstrate that metal ties actually provide as much protection in the event of a short circuit as cleats.  […] Continue reading

Introducing the EVO7 Cable Tie Gun − Engineered for Maximum Worker Comfort and Productivity

hellermanntyton ev07 cable tie gun, manual cable tensioning tool, installers, installing, EVO7Innovation often comes from thinking about an existing product in new ways. Recently at HellermannTyton we took this to heart when appraising our manual cable tensioning tool MK7, which has been loyally serving cable installers and wire harness manufacturers for almost 30 years.

In developing the successor to the MK7, we took the design of the manual cable tie gun back to the drawing board. We asked ourselves the question, “Can we alter the design of a cable tie handgun to reduce the risk of repetitive strain on the operator and at the same time increase productivity?[…] Continue reading
