How HELUKABEL’s cable design department turns complex requirements into tailor-made solutions

When HELUKABEL receives a request for a custom cable from one of their customers, the work begins in their cable design department. Their task is to develop solutions that meet unique and often technically complex requirements. For this, a lot of know-how and expertise are essential.

Custom cable manufacturing is one of HELUKABEL’s greatest strengths – and would not be possible without the “Cable Design” department, which is based at their production plant in Windsbach, Germany.

“Our customers come to us with requests and requirements that cannot easily be met with standard products,” describes department head, Ömer Durak. “So we then try to design cables and conductors that are perfectly suited to the application in question.”

Durak’s team is therefore made up of individuals who are technically skilled – after all, they deal with new challenges almost every day. “A good example is hybrid cables, where we combine electrical conductors, data cables and media hoses, for oil or compressed air, all into one cable,” says Durak. “No two cables are the same.” Researching and developing new materials that have special advantages for certain applications is also one his department’s tasks.

At the same time, new products being developed must comply with different standards and regulations so that they can be used for their intended purpose. “Here we benefit from the fact that we can build on a broad range of standard products that are approved,” Durak explains. “This means that we don’t always need to start from scratch, we can also modify existing designs as required.”

For all requests, the cable design department works closely with colleagues in the technical sales team as well as with the customers themselves. Once the technical parameters have been defined, a sample of the new cable is first produced in our factory in Windsbach.

“This is risk-free for our customers and allows them to check that our solution meets all their demands,” Durak assures.

Once the cable has been approved by the user, HELUKABEL starts the series production. “Having the product development and manufacturing expertise completely in-house is a great advantage as it allows us to offer everything from one source,” Durak summarizes and emphasizes: “Our team is only satisfied when the customer is too.”

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
