The Art of the Perfect Cable

We develop optimal cable solutions for our customers. The challenges faced by modern cables and wires are multifaceted: moving applications with more than ten million cycles, severe mechanical and chemical loads, tricky bending radii and space-saving hybrid solutions. For each, HELUKABEL has answers to help you.
To ensure a faultless operation, all new products developed undergo rigorous testing at our R&D centre in Windsbach, near Nuremberg. Here we bend, pull, grind and ignite the cable for all it’s worth. Our special aging ovens are time machines that simulate a cable’s life cycle and far beyond. And we guarantee compliance with national and international standards.

Our test facilities:

  • Torsion test tower for wind power cables
  • Drag chain test equipment (1m, 3m, 5m, 6m, 18m, 20m and 40m accelerations up to 50m/s; travel speeds up to 10m/s)
  • Fire testing equipment
  • Abrasion testing equipment
  • Test facilities for bending and torsion requirements
  • Aging furnaces according to UL, VDE, CSA, HAR, TÜV, CCC

Drag Chain Test Equipment

Products are tested for moving applications in drag chains covering short, medium and long distances.

Test Tower for Wind Power Cables

The torsion of wind power lines is tested in a custom-built test tower.

Fire Testing Equipment

We regularly conduct fire tests in accordance with international standards such as UL/CSA, VDE, HAR.

Abrasion Testing Equipment

The durability of the outer sheath is tested for abrasion resistance.
