Tsubaki Kabelschlepp has released its latest innovative cable carrier system, the Cleanveyor, which it says achieves cleanliness levels through minimal abrasion.
In a statement, the company described the Cleanveyor as a “cleanroom flat cable system for the semiconductor and medical industry”.
It said the solution, which was developed specifically for use in cleanrooms, can also be equipped with cables and pneumatic hoses and delivered ready to install.
The flat cable system is wear-resistant with low vibrations to keep the quantity of airborne particles to a minimum.
The combination of highly wear-resistant cables, hoses and carrier elements ensures extremely low dust generation as well as an extended service life: Users can benefit from a long service life of over 10 million cycles.
The Cleanveyor is certified to ISO cleanroom class 1 and therefore the ideal product for use in production and testing facilities for semiconductors, LEDs and OLEDs. But it is also a good choice for production systems in the medical and pharmaceutical industries.
The wide temperature range from -10 °C to +80 °C additionally expands the area of application. The Cleanveyor is suitable for applications with travel lengths of up to three meters and speeds of up to two meters per second.
Special carrier elements are the “backbone” of the solution. These were developed based on the know-how of Tsubaki in the field of hose and cable carrier systems.
As the chain-based mechanism only bends in one direction in the defined bending radius, it remains reliably on the track.
This supports the stable motion of the system, is gentle on the cables and also minimizes noise generation using a low-vibration process: With a noise level of less than 38 dB(A), this is a particularly quiet solution, Tsubaki said.
“Digitalisation changes the way we live and work – from digital whiteboards in schools to networked product environments,” the company said in a statement.
“However, for machines to communicate with each other and robots to take over tasks, they always need a lifeline for power supply and the exchange of data and signals. This is where the Tsubaki Kabelschlepp cable carriers come into play.
“They protect and guide the indispensable cables – cable spaghetti and communication problems cannot occur in the first place. The focus here is always on customer benefit. The digital tools from Tsubaki Kabelschlepp also ensure this.
“Whether OnlineEngineer or Quickfinder, the intuitive online tools facilitate orientation in the extensive product portfolio.”
