A solution making it easier and quicker to strip back long lengths of cable has been developed by igus UK.

By integrating a tear strip into the cable jacket, CFRIP technology, offered in the chainflex CF5 PVC control cable family, simplifies the stripping back of the cables, especially for those with gusset-filled extruded jackets, without damaging the cores. The outer jacket can be opened like a zipper to the desired length by simply pulling the special tear strip.

Justin Leonard, company director, believes that the new cable design will enable workers to operate with greater efficiency. He said:  “This simple method of stripping cable jackets is a neat solution for today’s electrical engineers, making it much faster to take off cable jackets and allowing them to get the job done more quickly than before.”
