ÖLFLEX CONNECT® made by LAPP

About Us

Reliably connecting the world.

The days in which the manufacturing and service sectors could be clearly separated are well and truly over. A change is taking place in people’s minds, in factories and in businesses like the LAPP Group. Customers are searching for solutions rather than components, and manufacturers are now developing and providing complex systems. Our ÖLFLEX® CONNECT range shows what can happen when components and solutions are seen as a single entity rather than treated separately.

Our idea of a system

Start focusing your resources on your core project and let LAPP handle your connectivity needs for maximum profitability.

EMAG Gruppe, Germany

The customer

The EMAG group supplies machinery and production systems for processing precise metal parts with the aid of a variety of production technologies. Whether it is lathes, grinders, gear-cutting machinery, laser-welding machinery, heating and joining machinery, inductive hardening machinery or machinery for electrochemical metal processing – the EMAG group offers the optimum production solution for almost every application.

The application

EMAG produces machines, which place high demands on the cables due to high automation level. Essential factors are the guarantee of very good electromagnetic shielding as well as minimal movement wear. Complex manufacturing systems are more susceptible to EMC disturbances, therefore prevention is a must.

The solution

Our ready-made servo assemblies are delivered just-in-time to EMAG and added to the installation. We are able to ensure a consistently high standard of quality due to the partly automated manufacturing process. EMAG additionally profits from reduction of storage costs and safeguarding of delivery capability.

ÖLFLEX® CONNECT CHAIN

When it comes to assembled drag chains, you can benefit from our extensive know-how and many years of experience. Our system engineers know our components right down to the smallest detail, but also have an in-depth understanding of your application.

TOSHULIN, Czech Republic

The customer

TOSHULIN is specialized in designing and manufacturing of high quality machine tools, especially vertical lathes. These are offered with table diameters ranging from 800 mm up to 6000 mm and equipped with top quality electronic components, which guarantee high performance, reliability and accuracy at machining.

The application

The LAPP dragchain assemblies are used to supply all moveable axis of drilling machines. The special requirements are minimum space and, due to more complex automation processes, increasing number of needed cables in the dragchain.

The solution

LAPP application engineers reviewed existing dragchain solution and redesigned nylon and steel chains more effective with our SILVYN® CHAIN portfolio, including FD cables and hydraulic hoses. Our assembled dragchains are delivered with drawings, cable layouts and system warranty. TOSHULIN confirmed cost savings due to logistics and warehouse optimization, reduced cut loss and assembly time.
