Overview

In today’s automation equipment, cables are required to move faster with high flex life performance while delivering reliable signal transmission to meet new video interface protocols. As cables move, flex, and rub against cable carriers, the materials used in the construction often shed particles that can contaminate environments and damage sensitive equipment. So, cables and materials need to be durable to withstand these complex environments and last longer to reduce downtime and maintenance costs.

GORE High Flex Flat Cables provide a simple cable management system in applications where flex-life reliability and excellent signal integrity are critical, and other cables fail. With a proven flex life, Gore’s cables deliver reliable signal integrity for high-speed data transmission over longer distances. Our cables also provide durable environmental protection because they reduce particulation commonly associated with cable carriers. They’re easier to install too because of the lightweight construction with greater flexibility and a tight bend radius.

GORE High Flex Flat Cables are an ideal choice for applications that require high flex life, excellent signal integrity, reduced particulation and easy installation — all of which translates to less downtime, maintenance and total costs over the equipment lifecycle.

Applications

GORE High Flex Flat Cables are engineered to perform reliably in a variety of industrial automation applications, including:

  • cleanrooms
  • linear motion
  • lithography
  • pick and place
  • robotics
  • semiconductor
  • vision inspection
  • wafer manufacturing/handling
