The machinery and equipment industry sets many different and extremely high requirements with respect to the components and parts used in its systems. These industries develop, design and manufacture machinery that goes on to be used in a wide field of different applications. This includes not only motors, driven machinery and mechanical tools but also conveyor systems. Projects in this industry involve the design and manufacture of individual machine components, complex processing systems right up to complete production lines. In order to supply the individual machine components with energy as well as control and regulation data signals, all sorts of cables ranging from thick energy cables to delicate fibre-optic cables have to be routed through the machine along trunking. Trunking for this industry must be strong and stiff, vibration resistant, installer friendly and allow the quick and easy placement of cables.
PFLITSCH designed VARiOX trunking specially for machinery and equipment industry, where the cable layout routes are often long: this basic trunking system with only 42 system parts delivers the desired variability and cost effectiveness. For ease of installation, it is difficult to beat this system, with its VARiOX quick-release connector, which makes assembling individual trunking components a very quick operation. The VARiOX system components can be screwed together to make the installation more resistant to vibration. Optimised wall thicknesses make the trunking lightweight and yet resistant to deformation.
A clever and time-saving system. The self-engaging cover means VARiOX trunking can be opened over its complete length, e.g. if the cable installation requires to be modified later.
