Featured Product: Roboflex

The Mueller Group’s Roboflex product line is a high flex, torsional cable.  It is made with black Polyurethane specifically for combined bending & torsional stresses.  Roboflex cables are commonly used in welding robots, rotary tables, power chains & other automated applications requiring a twisting motion.  The PUR jacket is specially formulated to be resistant to oil, microbes, corrosion, oxygen, UV-radiation, solvents, acids, hydraulic fluids & alkalies.

Roboflex is made in 2 through 24AWG with varying conductor counts.  The Mueller Group stocks many of these sizes in Chicago.  Contact us to inquire about the product line or request a quote today.

Automation Integration

As in all aspects of business, end users & machine builders need to maintain a high level of efficiency in order to be competitive.  Siemens Drive Technologies is introducing a new drive system that will integrate products & services already being used.  The integrated system will allow for a simplified process reducing waste, time & resources.  The system is first being applied to the oil & gas, mining, & cement industries.

The Mueller Group stocks the full line of cables used in Siemens Motors.  Whether for motor or feedback, we can supply cost effective equals made to the same specifications as Siemens 6FX products.  Contact The Mueller Group for more information.

Happy New Year!

Featured Product: Multiflex-P

MULTIFLEX-P is a polyurethane, high flex, heavy-duty, oil-resistant, halogen-free, continuous flex multi-conductor drag chain cable.  It is designed for use in the machine tool industry, robotics, machine production and drag chains where high flexibility is essential. It is suitable for use in permanent flexing and stationary applications under high mechanical stress with free movements in dry, damp or wet areas.  These halogen-free cables offer optimum service life and an expanded temperature range commonly found in movable automated machine parts, cable tracks and multi-shift operations.  It is best used for applications that require extreme bending stress and smallest bending radius possible with long travel distances.

The rugged PUR jacket offers high abrasion, tear resistance and adhesion-free qualities along with good chemical resistance to coolants and mineral oils.  Outdoor installation is permitted due to the weather, ozone and UV-resistant outer jacket.

Multiflex-P  is The Mueller Group’s 240 Series. We stock various constructions 16 through 20 AWG.  Download the spec here and contact The Mueller Group to request a quote.

What is REACH?

Over the last few months, The Mueller Group has received many requests from our customers to provide REACH compliance documentation.  With all of the different certifications that can be required on a cable, it can get confusing.

REACH, Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals concerns strictly the chemicals used in manufactured products.  It emphasizes full disclosure of harmful substances that may be included in various products.  This is all done to improve the protection of human & environmental health.

SVHCs (Substance of Very High Concern) can vary greatly and are included based on different factors.  The most common are ‘carcinogenic’ or ‘toxic for reproduction’.  Due to the vast substances included in REACH, it can be very overwhelming, but a useful regulation for human health.

A list from the European Chemicals Agency can be found here.
