Custom cable entry plates on demand
28 January 2019
There are a multitude of options available for traditional methods of cable management, using off the shelf catalogue cable entry systems that are designed for applications within standard industrial cabinetry.
However, for more complex applications, or when the standard range of products does not completely fit the bill, Buttkereit is now able to offer an “On Demand” bespoke solution, tailored to meet the individual requirements of the application, on a quick turnaround and at a price close to that of standard products.
The Cable Entry On Demand concept offers the first cable entry system that is completely customisable in terms of size, shape and features. Configuration and pricing for individual solutions can be provided quickly, by submitting a sketch or CAD drawing.
As a bespoke solution, customers can specify the physical shape required for the cable entry plate, the size – ranging from just 1cm x 1cm right up to 1.5 metres x 3.0 metres, plus the number of holes, dimensions and pattern needed for the specific application. Cable entry plates can be produced to suit any combination of standard cables, with or without connectors, ribbon cables, power cable or pneumatic lines.
Innovative production in a highly flexible manufacturing process
The On Demand products are manufactured in a sandwich process from either V2A stainless steel or PE, however other materials can be used if required. The resultant products achieve a high degree of rigidity even with minimum thicknesses. The highly flexible manufacturing process used can accommodate all shapes and sizes, and easily produce complex cut-outs, filigree structures and thin cross bar features in any combination as required. Hole sizes range from just 1.0mm in diameter up to a maximum of 50mm diameter, and offer a high degree of strain relief and ingress protection levels up to IP69K.
Martin Buttkereit, Director at Buttkereit Limited, commented: “This is the perfect solution to those cable management applications which fall outside of our comprehensive range of standard products. Further benefits for our customers include our ability to turn around these items in just a matter of days from approval of design, offer minimum quantities of just 5 and provide attractive costs that are close to those of standard products.”
The ability to have a bespoke cable entry design eliminates the potential for installation or in-service problems that might occur as a result of a compromised solution, where a combination of different standard products may have been used in an attempt to facilitate the requirements.
The Cable Entry On Demand products are the latest addition to the wide range products offered by Buttkereit Limited which include: cable entry and cable management systems, energy chain solutions, conduits, shield clamps and strain relief components, plus a range of machine protection systems.
