White Paper - RMBT Bonded Cable with Block

Dyden’s exclusive RMBT Bonded Cable with Block is recommended for applications with intertwined cables, including various FA transport equipment and robots. RMBT responds to an increased demand for the elimination of cable tracks, especially from semiconductor equipment manufacturers. Compared to conventional cable tracks, RMBT is lighter, saves space and generates less dust and noise. Positioned on the back of the cable, the blocks prevent sagging and enable independent flexible operations.

RMBT has been certified with the IPA standard by the German Fraunhofer research institute, which is the global authority in clean room technology and corresponds with RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive).
