RMBT Bonded Cable with Block

Flexible Cable - RMBT self-supporting bonded round cable with block.

RMBT is a flexible bonded round cable that can independently run without a cable trac (cableveyor), and is suitable for various factory automation motion equipment and robot applications. The blocks placed on the back of the cable prevent sagging, making independently flexible operations possible. Compared to conventional cable tracks, using RMBT results in reduced weight, space savings, reduced dust generation, and noise reduction.

The RMBT cable system has been certified with the IPA standard by the Fraunhofer Research Institute in Germany, which is the global authority in clean room technology. The RMBT also considers the environment and corresponds with RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive). RMBT can be bonded with different OD cables (air and liquid tubes).
