Flex Cable

In order for the flex cable to have maximum flexibility, it requires both flexible conductor and soft insulation. For devices that are in continuous movement that also requires huge current and a large gauge, flex cable is the most ideal option. This is because if non flex cable were to be used in these applications, the rigid and hard cable will cause the device to be difficult to operate and its movement will be severely limited. Stranded 0.06mm and 0.08mm copper conductor is the common choice for general flex cable. 


Description and Application of Flex Cable

There are applications that entail extreme flexing and rigorous performance conditions, this is what high flexible cables are built for. With the ability to withstand continuous flexing up to and exceeding a 10 million flex cycles, it truly is a remarkable cable. SHONSIN Cable can design a continuous flex cable to meet the most critical performance standards. The benefits of a custom designed high flex cable and wire by SHONSIN are exceptional performance, extended cable life and greater reliability than standard off the shelf cables.

There are many and varied applications for high flex cables.  These include, but are not limited to:

  • Robotics

  • Pick/Place Equipment

  • Measurement Equipment

  • Conveyor Equipment

  • Animatronics

  • Packaging Machinery

  • Many more applications where continuous motion is required

SHONSIN Cable provides 6AWG ~ 30AWG flexible silicone cable with stranded 0.08mm tinned copper conductor  from stock allowing for quick turnaround time and measurable cost savings. You can refer to the table below for the specification sheet of soft silicone wire:
