    What are the Key Points When Installing Cable Drag Chain?

    There are many types of cable, and in different places and construction environment, the performance requirements for cable are different. Generally in some outdoor application environment is more harsh conditions, will choose the cable drag chain to meet the requirements of production. So when installing this kind of cable, how to fix it to meet the requirements of production? In this article, ATO automation will introduce key points about this.

    How to Select a Cable Drag Chain?

    Several factors relate to how to choose the best cable track for your application. The material used for the cable track depends on the type required, how you want it to move and the level of durability required. Selecting the correct drag chain will prevent premature failure of the carrier or internal cable. In order to help you to choose a suitable cable drag chain, ATO industrial automation will introduce some key points when you choosing a cable drag chain.

    What are the Applications of Drag Chain?

    Drag chain is a device that binds cable or wire or air compressor and oil compressor to facilitate its rotation and movement. It is a protective covering that secures cables or hoses to keep them separated and permit movement around automated machinery. Consequently, with numerous industries embracing automation, the need for these drag chains is essential. In this article, we will introduce the applications of drag chain.

    Why Does Drag Chain Have Built-in Spacers?

    The drag chain is a device that binds cables or wires or air pressure pipes and oil pressure pipes to facilitate their rotation and movement. Energy chains are used to carry and protect cables, hydraulic pipes, gas pipes and other medium pipes, and to regulate the movement of medium pipes to avoid mutual entanglement, twisting and damage. Drag chains are spliced ‚Äč‚Äčtogether by flexible unit chain links, and are widely used in platforms that require mobile power supply, such as: machine tools, construction machinery, welding and cutting equipment, electronics industry, logistics storage equipment, conveying equipment, injection molding industry, automobile manufacturing and other industries.

    How to Use Drag Chain?

    If the cable drag chain cable is stretched by tension during wiring, it will friction with the inner wall of the drag chain and cause the sheath to wear. On the contrary, if the wiring is too loose, it will also cause friction with the inner wall of the drag chain, causing the sheath to wear, and it will easily be entangled with other cables. The wiring length of the drag chain cable should be set to just pass the center line of the drag chain. In addition, if the moving part of the drag chain cable is fixed, the bending stress will not be dispersed and absorbed. The fixed part of the cable should be set at both ends of the drag chain.

    Difference Between Drag Chain and Ordinary Cable

    First of all, in terms of flexibility, drag chains are more flexible than ordinary cables. Although the monofilament diameter of the drag chain cable conductor is small, in order to protect the conductor, an insulating material with resistance to mechanical fatigue and a certain strength must be selected. The requirements of tensile resistance, bending resistance, strong wear resistance, anti-blocking, and high toughness also determine that the protective cover material should also have a certain degree of hardness. Therefore, the flexibility of the drag chain is high flexibility, not high flexibility.
