Nylon cable drag chain is one facility to make the cables, wires, air pressure tubes, oil pressure tubes move more conveniently.
This product is made of reinforced nylon. It can stand high pressure, with good tensile strength, tenacity, elasticity, flaming resistance and abrasive resistance. Besides, it is stable in extreme temperatures.
The advantages of the materials decides the products are available and good at being used in the outdoors. The content of the nylon is the key point of the product. It will affect the intensity, abrasive resistance and the noise during the operation directly.
There are different content levels, 5% to 17%, some is about 30%. So it is quite important to find a good manufacturer.
- The appearance of the product seems like the tank chain. It is linked by many units. Each link can rotate smoothly.
- The same series products have the same inner height, outer height and unit distance. But they may have different inner widths and radii.
- The link between the two units are consisted by two chain panels and the lid panels. Each units can be opened for the convenience to assemble and disassemble. There is no need of threading. Just put the cable, oil tube, pipe in the drag chain, after opening the lid panel.
- Many suppliers can offer the users the separating panels, to separate the space in the chain as the requirements of the users.
- Bridge Style
It is suitable to most cables and wires. This type is easy to monitor the wiring situations.
- Full Sealing Style
Most cables can use this type, it is to prevent the things from the outside to damage the wires and cables.
- Semi-Closed Style
Only small part of cables can use it. The feature of this type is it is easy to assemble and disassemble.
- Steel-Aluminium Style
It fits to the heavy duty cables. The high intensity makes the product difficult to break and with long service life.
- Delicacy Appearance
The outlook of the product is very delicacy. It is smooth on the surfaces.
- Resistance to Abrasive and Sliding
It is abrasive and sliding resisting. And the smooth surface can reduce the friction.
- Small Noise and High Speed
When the product is working, there is small noise. And the speed of the operation is very high. It is 5 m/s.
- Steady Chemical Characteristics
The material is reinforced PA 66. It has longer service life, and difficult to break. And it has high mechanical strength, difficult to be corroded by the acid and base. Besides, it is oil proof and salt proof.
- Resisting to the Heat and Cold
It performs well in the high temperature and low temperature. It could be used in both indoors and outdoors. The lowest temperature for this product can be -40
- Stable Structure and Firm Quality
It is processed by precise molds, strong in the structure and quality. So it can offer the protection to the cables, oil tubes and pipes, and reduce the pulling and pressure from the outside force.
- Easy for Maintenance and Setting
Each part of the chain can be opened, which makes the maintenance easier.
How to Tell the Product Quality?
If you can see the reflect sunlight uniform and no astigmatism, this product is good in the material. The raw material must be even and superior.
2. Touch each corner and the surface of the product by hand.
If you feel smooth and no prickly, it means the error range of the mold for this product is very small.
3. Make the wood grate to file the surface of the product.
If you find pits appeared in a short time, and the fragments dropped from the product is in the state of the granule, that means the plastic material may be the recycled materials. If you find it very hard to file the product to make pits, and the fragments dropped is in the ropy state, that means the material this product used has the material of glass fiber with high intensity. So this product will have very strong abrasive resistance.
How to Prevent the Static Electricity?
The material of this product is reinforced nylon. If it is in the dry state for a long time, it may cause harm to the cables, even affect the use of the machines. Thus to prevent the static electricity is very important for the cnc cable drag chains.
1. Use the Superior Raw Materials
The superior reinforced nylon can prevent the static electricity. The safety factor of this material is very high, it can be applied in almost all the working conditions.
2. Improve the Working Environment
3. Add Ground Lead
Add ground lead in the machine equipment, to lead the static electricity into the ground.
