Tomorrow’s world will be networked, intelligently controlled, and increasingly influenced by the need for maximum traceability of products and raw materials. That is why we have focused for many years on the continuous development of new and optimized wires and cables that work reliably and fit perfectly into your processes. Development team members collaborate closely with you to create advanced technologies and develop solutions today for the applications of tomorrow. Our maxim is to always listen carefully to your individual wishes and requirements. Together with you, we think ahead and set benchmarks for your industry.
Our development activities are very closely aligned to the specific needs not only of the automotive industry but of other sectors too. For example, our Coroflex® product series converts general system requirements for sensor and control cables into special, made-to-measure applications tailored to individual industries. The following are just a few examples:
Sensor and control cables designed for automation or robotics applications must be extremely flexible. In addition, the amount of talcum they contain needs to be reduced to a minimum to prevent contamination of the machines. Especially in a cleanroom environment, even the slightest contamination of the production process due to particles in the air can result in serious disruptions and interfere with the functioning of semiconductor devices, for instance.
That is the reason why we developed a novel solution that achieves the highest cleanroom classification and has been certified by Fraunhofer IPA (Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation) https://www.ipa.fraunhofer.de/.
Applications in medical technology also place particularly high demands on our cables. Not only must they satisfy hygiene standards, but they must also be antibacterial and have an antimicrobial surface. Multi-drug-resistant organisms in hospitals, which can also be transmitted via medical devices, can cause dangerous infections especially in chronically ill patients or those with weakened immune systems. The Coroflex Hospital Series was developed with an antibacterial surface designed to prevent contamination. This cable technology is based on a special physical principle, which simultaneously protects the environment and is resource-friendly. Unlike our competitors, we do not use any biocidal substances and nanometals, which are thought to have a critical impact on health.
The high stripping capability up to a length of 1.5 m (compared to 0.3 m with conventional cables available by the meter) represents a special application feature of our Coroflex sensor cable. It enables longer stripping lengths of the cable sheath in a single (possibly manual) operation.
The professionalism and the flexibility, with which this special sensor cable was tailor-made by Coroplast, are truly impressive. They chose an efficient and solution-oriented approach while keeping a clear focus on our requirements. The result: high quality and an innovative product.
Our sensor and control cables set trends in the industry, which is why they won the German Innovation Award in Gold in 2018. The jury particularly praised certain features that are unmatched by any other products currently available on the market, for example:
