With companies around the world slugging it out to expand their market share, it is often the seemingly small things that can turn into a decisive advantage. For example, in these times of end-to-end connectivity, an efficient connection technology can play a crucial role for machine tool manufacturers. The Lapp Group, a market leader for integrated cable and connection solutions, is at EMO Hannover 2017 to show companies how they can get ahead of the competition in precisely this area. Taking pride of place on the Stuttgart-based company's stand are its latest system solutions under the ÖLFLEX CONNECT brand, which has already made a big impression internationally. ÖLFLEX CONNECT from Lapp offers users bespoke, ready-made cable harnessing and power chains - ensuring companies can focus on their core tasks instead of assembling cables and connectors themselves.
However, Lapp solutions are not just convenient - the company is always ready to respond rapidly to new developments and create solutions with special performance characteristics. One particular highlight is the innovative series of ÖLFLEX CONNECT SERVO harnessing for connecting up servo drives. Thanks to a semi-automated production process and innovative cables and connectors developed in house, this harnessing is claimed to boost electromagnetic shielding by at least 400 percent compared to conventional alternatives. What’s more, Lapp has an international production and distribution network that ensures outstanding customer proximity and enables it to offer its solutions at the same high-quality standard worldwide.
