Special Cable Systems for Cleanrooms

Kabelschlepp Metool, specialising in cable carriers, introduces two innovative solutions specifically designed to operate in cleanrooms with the highest classifications. The Cleanveyor, certified to ISO cleanroom class 1, ensures a long service life of over 10 million cycles and is featured by a particularly
low noise level. The Flatveyor, compliant with ISO cleanroom class 2 and featured by a space saving and lightweight design, is made of internal support elements to ensure that cables and hoses are guided reliably.

Cleanveyor and Flatveyor are two innovative systems specifically designed by Kabelschlepp Metool, a company specializing in cable carriers, for cleanrooms with the highest cleanroom classifications. Cables and hoses are guided in flexible, yet robust sheathing. This design is not only particularly lightweight, quiet and space saving, but also ensures little to no abrasion. “The two cable systems are an ideal supplement to our regular cable carriers”, explains Peter Sebastian Pütz, Key Account Manager Business Development at Kabelschlepp. “They were specially developed for cleanrooms and meet
all requirements of this industry”.
The Cleanveyor is certified to ISO cleanroom class 1 and therefore the ideal product for use in production and test facilities for semiconductors, LEDs and OLEDs. With a noise level of less than 38 dB(A), this is a particularly quiet solution. Users will also benefit from a long service life of over 10 million cycles. On request, the cable system can be supplied with harnessed cables and pneumatic hoses, which are pre-installed according to customer specifications.

Space saving and lightweight design
The Flatveyor is a flat cable system as per ISO cleanroom class 2, with internal support elements to allow travel lengths of up to 3 m and speeds of up to 2 m per second. The support elements act as reliable guides which can be moved in one direction along the intended bending radius, whereby the cables and hoses are guided reliably. For smooth running, the system moves along the minimum bending radius of the cables, whereby a small pitch reduces noise and vibrations during operation.
The design was inspired by a flat cable and is particularly space saving and lightweight; the system can easily be integrated into plants. Overall, this solution facilitates reduction of dust and noise generation in cleanrooms and therefore contributes to lowering total costs.

Pacesetter for digitalization
Digitalization changes the way we live and work: from digital whiteboards in schools to networked product environments. But even the most intelligent systems still need a lifeline for power supply and exchanging data and signals. This is where drag chains from Kabelschlepp Metool come into play. They protect and guide these essential cables. The focus here is always on digital tools with customer benefit. Whether OnlineEngineer or Quickfinder, the intuitive online tools simplify navigation of the company’s extensive product portfolio.
