Cable shield

Robots and peripheral equipment at the manufacturing site are exposed to various threats such as friction, sparks, and chemicals.
Our cable shield is a high performance cloth cover, which protects the wiring/cables of robots and other equipment from such physical threats.
By preventing cable breakage, disruption caused by production line issues can be prevented and overall productivity can be improved and stabilized.
We have a wide variety of fabrics according to the application, so you can use them with confidence in various situations.
In addition, the removable design makes it easy to remove for the maintenance.
Since it is manufactured in-house, it is possible to respond to short delivery times and small batches.

Cable shield

Role of cable shield

  • Cable protection from friction
    Protects against friction generated when the main unit and the cable come into contact.
  • Cable protection from sparks
    Protects against sparks generated during welding.
  • Protection from chemicals
    Protects against strongly acidic chemicals and oil stains.
  • Protection from dirt
    Protects against scattered particles and dust.
  • Bundle cables
    Combining multiple cables stabilizes the operation and creates a neat and tidy appearance.

Typical fabric types

  • Meta-aramid fiber cloth
    This fabric combines heat resistance, high strength, and electrical insulation. It comes in a range of colors.
  • PBO fiber cloth
    It has the highest strength in the world among existing organic fibers. It has a decomposition temperature of 650℃, a limiting oxygen index of 68, and amazing heat resistance and flame retardant properties.

【Data for various materials】

  LOI value Tensile strength(N/5㎝) Decomposition temperature(℃)
Meta-aramid fiber cloth 34.5 1811 400
Para-aramid fiber cloth 29~40 3860 500
PBO fiber cloth 68 6730 650

※The higher the LOI value, the more difficult it is to burn. In general, if it is 26 or higher, it is considered to be flame retardant.
※The physical property values listed are not guaranteed values.

We also carry many other high strength and heat resistant fabrics.

Test results

Meta-aramid fiber cloth
Even after 2 minutes of heating, there is no residual flame or residue.
The carbonized area when heated for 1 minute is 6.6㎠. The carbonized area when heated for 2 minutes is 8.75㎠.
There was no flame after 2 minutes.
Flame begins to spread after 3 to 4 seconds, and fire takes hold after 10 seconds.
The flames broke out within a few seconds after igniting but burned out almost instantly.
