Stripping the insulation jacket from high quality cables is a very time consuming operation. If performed manually with a sharp cutting tool the insulation of the inner core cables can be damaged, and may result in a safety hazard or expensive scrapping of material. The risk is compounded when long lengths of cable jackets have to be stripped.
igus® has introduced the CFRIP® tear strip, along with a special plastic hand tool, that reduces cable insulation stripping times by up to 50% – saving both time and money. Requiring no cutting operation with metal tools, the outer jacket (inner jacket on shielded types) can be quickly and safely removed to the desired length.
This feature is now available on 569 e-chain® cables, including the new CF78.UL PUR control cable, providing quick and easy cable striping without damaging the core insulation or outer jacket. The CFRIP® technology received the IF Design Award in 2016.
