World's No. 1 in terms of choice, testing and guarantee. With chainflex cables from igus, you reduce your costs by up to 64.7%², with the same or longer service life. We give you our 36 month guarantee1.

The best price-performance ratio

With the igus price check, the right cable for your needs can be found very quickly

Every electrical specification is available in seven cable qualities. The choice is yours: cost-effective price or the cable for high technical requirements. Whatever option you go for, we give you a 36 month guarantee on your cable.

Example: 64.7% more cost-effective in the case of control cables and 36 month guarantee

This cost saving² can be achieved through use of the slimline chainflex® CF130.UL series, instead of a CF77.UL.D, for adaptation to the respective application mechanics without any reduction of electrical properties, even if the core/cross-section combination and length are the same.
