Precautions For Using The Towline For Cables And Tubing On Machine Tools
Jan 22, 2019

The towline protects the machine tool cable and tubing, and the cable can also move back and forth along with the drag chain, which not only protects the cable, but also adds external beauty. It has become a common industrial product for protecting cables now, so it is in use. What should you pay attention to when you are dragging a steel chain? Should the chain be used to maximize protection?

First: the cables in the machine chain must not be in contact with each other or trapped together. There must be a certain distance between them. The cables must be loosely laid side by side in the drag chain, arranged as far as possible, separated or penetrated by spacers. In the separation cavity of the bracket neutral, the gap between the cables in the drag chain shall be at least 10% of the cable diameter;

Second: You must pay attention to the minimum bending radius of the cable to ensure that the machine cable moves completely within the bending radius, ie it cannot be forced to move. Thus the cables can be moved relative to one another or to the guide. After a period of operation, it is best to check the location of the cable. This check must be made after the push-pull movement;

Third: the laying of the machine tool cable should not be distorted, that is, the cable should not be unwound from one end of the cable reel or cable reel. Instead, the cable should be unrolled by rotating the reel or cable reel, and if necessary, the cable can be unfolded or hung. Cables used in this case can only be taken directly from the cable roll;

Fourth: Both points of the cable must be fixed, or at least must be fixed at the moving end of the chain. Generally, the distance between the moving point of the cable and the end of the towline should be 20-30 times the diameter of the cable;

Fifth: Most notable, if the chain is broken, the cable needs to be replaced, because the damage caused by excessive stretching cannot be avoided.
