TKD robotic cables keep production going.
In the international marketplace, only those who offer products that are in demand and priced right, can succeed. For this reason, effective manufacturing systems are always an important competitive advantage.
Because car manufacturers expect from themselves as well as from all of their partners that take part in the manufacturing process the highest quality, they bet on our cables. In manufacturing and assembly lines world-wide, KWF’s reliable and premium products ensure that car production runs securely and trouble-free and that downtimes are reduced to a minimum.
TKD-special cables for ‘burning hot’ duties and in construction.
For years our customers have relied on the internationally renowned quality of TKD products. Therefore, our cables are being used in highly specialized vehicles, where one needs to be 100% sure that all functions are available anytime and immediately.
In fire trucks, for example. There, turntable ladders are navigated with a Joystick. All measuring data such as length of the ladder, the overall weight of the ladder, stability of the truck, payload capacity, etc. are being transmitted reliably and safely through TKD special cables.
Cables from TKD are also mixing it up at construction sites: Because the placement of the booms of many concrete mixers is performed in a precise manner by well proven TKD system cables.
TKD cables help save and sustain lives.
For years, TKD has delivered complete medical system cable harnesses for operating tables. They help ensure that motor drives position the patient to the exact millimeter during the operation. That requires cable technology of maximum precision and absolute reliability: TKD quality - vitally necessary and for the well-being of the patients.
TKD-drag chain cables have been given quite a few wash downs.
With the extremely demanding operating conditions in washing bays, well-known manufacturers are glad to rely on the quality of TKD cables. Special jacketing compounds guarantee optimal transmission of energy, data and measured values, as well as long service lives of the cables: Best prerequisites for a long life span of a complex system operating under strenuous conditions.
TKD-sensor cables bring water to pastures.
These special cables transmit water level data reliably and trouble-free from sometimes distant cattle watering wells to the central control station of the farm. Thus, wells can be filled in time with fresh water. No water is unnecessarily wasted and there is always sufficient supply when the livestock is thirsty.
Sample specifications for a TKD-sensor cable:
- 6 conductors, one pressurization tube
- overall braid
- free-hanging length 1000 meters
- tensile strength 1.200 N
- certified for use in drinking water
- increased UV resistance
TKD heating cables bring comforting warmth into the home.
Whether as complete assemblies or on reels, whether for gutter heating, in the floor or in marble heating elements, with TKD heating cables everything is set problem-free and quickly to the correct temperature. Good bye freezing corners and cold feet!
TKD products set the merchant fleet afloat.
Demurrage is inefficient; therefore the time it takes ships to load and unload is constantly being reduced. The strain on crane and port facilities increases while simultaneously a smooth work flow without downtime is expected. The reliability of cable systems is an absolute must here.
In this situation many operators of port and crane facilities who want to stay ahead of their international competitors, trust the reliability of TKD cables and the know-how that stands behind these designs. One of our leading products in this area, for example, is the internationally recognized TROMMELFLEX PUR product line.
TKD cable technology – indispensable in science and research.
Where experiments and research are done, where science and business are creating the cornerstone of our future standard of living, that is where TKD’s highly specialized cables are present.
In molecular and particle research, for example. There, our cables are used in gigantic underground particle accelerators and under extreme conditions, and have only one task: they must function reliably and without the smallest deviations. No problem for TKD products, which easily meet the highest international standards.
Reference Tunnelling / Mining
Robust cables are important for tunnelling and mining, as they form the lifelines and nerve cords of these plants.
Electrical energy, data and control signals are distributed by a multitude of cables to sensors, controllers and motors. Standard cables as well as custom-made cables are used. Mainly tested rubber sheathed cables are suitable for mechanical heavy-duty use on building sites and underground. Chloroprene, better known under the trade name of Neoprene, is a synthetic rubber, which has proven to be very good sheathing material. The standardised connection cables with halogen-free special-elastomer design are optional and available. These are mainly used where local requirements for electrical safety and fire protection apply. TKD’s scaled structured portfolio offers these products in various cross-sections.
TKD special cables form decorative treasures.
Our cables control complex processes for automated jewelry production. As precious metals are made into coveted jewelry pieces, special cables from TKD transfer all control pulses.
TKD-systems for safe functions and a clear view.
TKD special cables in connection with specifically developed plug systems guarantee the trouble-free function of monitoring units in canals and the safe transmission of important data and measured values.
An integrated water hose, as well as separated water and copper lines at the terminals, make a permanent and thorough cleaning of the optics possible. This way, everything remains under optimal control.
TKD cables for high requirements.
Signals must be transferred in fractions of a second in a guaranteed, loss-free manner to be converted into motion. With good reason, world-class manufacturers of fork lift vehicles and systems trust the high performance, as well as dependability of TKD products. Whether in a cold-storage warehouse or under a canopy top, safety for people and goods is always the ultimate goal.
TKD products fly sky high.
Whether runway lighting or energy and data transmission, TKD cables contribute to the different segments of airport technology and their seamless connection. Thus the well-engineered technology of TKD special cables helps people be as mobile as possible. So that they can safely head into their well-deserved vacation or arrive at a business meeting.
TKD diagnostic cables control state-of-the-art technology in fancy cars.
As increasingly refined electronics make driving a car more pleasant, the more complicated the technology becomes and the higher are the requirements on its reliability. Therefore, automotive companies rely on the highly sensitive TKD diagnostic cables during their testing procedures.
Is the air thickening, outside or in a tunnel? If necessary, a sensor switches on to circulate air inside the cabin!
Driving into a tunnel and the lighting conditions change? The headlights switch themselves on automatically!
Wheel grip slipping? Traction control engages automatically!
Heavy, dense traffic? Speed adjusts automatically!
With the help of TKD diagnostic cables, these and many other functions are being tested and examined on the conveyor belts of the major car manufacturers.
