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 all of them, HELUKABEL has answers that help you.
Finally, to make sure there are no issues during use, 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. Testing for compliance with national and internal standards occurs without saying, and all results are signed and sealed.

Our test facilities:

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

Drag Chain Test Equipment

The focus is on testing products for moving applications in the drag chain with short, medium and long distances at slow and fast speeds.

Test Tower for Wind Power Cables

The torsional wind power lines are tested for torsion in a custom-built tower.

Fire Testing Equipment

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

Scrape Off Equipment

The durability of the outer sheath is tested for abrasion resistance in the scrape off equipment.
