Complex machinery requires complex cabling. When not efficiently organised, cabling can take up more space than is required, as well as becoming untidy and jumbled. The use of extensive cabling is unavoidable within the components of complex machinery, but it can be managed effectively.
Cable harnessing not only increases space, it gives added protection to your cables against harsh elements and temperatures. It’s cost effective, and is often tailor made to your cabling requirements.
A cable harness will bind your existing cables into one larger and more efficient cable. You may have heard it being referred to as cable loom, wire assembly or wire loom – it’s all the same product.
Cables which have been harnessed are easier to manage, saving time when setting up machinery and taking it apart, which is especially important whilst performing regular safety checks on your machinery.
The tough outer sheath on cable harnessing adds protection to fragile cables which may otherwise be affected by moisture, vibrations from machinery and general abrasions.
In certain industries and their machinery, frequent exposure to chemicals, liquids and general wear and tear is unavoidable. Despite the majority of cabling being designed to withstand such conditions, an added safeguard of a cable harness should certainly be considered.
A good example of this is machinery within the food and beverage industry. Machinery within this industry requires regular deep cleaning with strong cleaning chemicals in order to maintain the strict health and safety standards which are currently in place.
When cables in machinery used for food and beverages are harnessed effectively, this reduces the potential risk of damage to cabling from harsh cleaning chemicals and liquids.
