Process Information
LAPP’s Continuous Flex Test Method Verification helps to assist in determining a product’s point of degradation with regards to electrical and mechanical parameters based on the amount of continuous flexing cycles it has undergone. This method also allows the end-user to estimate a preventative maintenance program based on the product’s cycle life performance. The need to perform Continuous Flexing testing is driven by ever evolving Industry and real-world applications. To offer products compliant with the end-use application, LAPP’s test methods and parameters have been carefully developed based on several years of industry experience and customer feedback. Rather than to merely imply with generic type statements that our cables were simply “extremely flexible”, LAPP’s innovative principles drove them to devise the standard for continuous flexing cable performance guidelines. These guidelines otherwise known as LAPP's Motion type attributes have become the standard to follow in the continuous flexing cable industry used by contractors, designers, equipment manufacturers, and end-users alike.
