KORIKI™ Spatter-Resistant High-Strength Cable

Used for robots, the Spatter Resistant High-Strength Cable features weld spatter resistant and flame retardant sheathing material.
Arc welding and grinding robots are wired with numerous cables and holes can occur on these cables due to burn or melt damage, caused by contact with sparks generated during welding or grinding operation. Through the use of a special vinyl in the sheathing, this spatter resistant high-strength cable keeps welding and grinding spark damage to a minimum. This cable is used in the wiring of moving parts exposed to such spatter.

Product Features
  • The superior weld spark resistance restrains melting and burn-through damage to the sheathing, thereby extending the cable service life.
  • The superior flame retardancy prevents burn-through on the sheathing.
  • A far superior flex and twist durability is achieved through the use of high-strength copper alloy wire for the conductor.
Applications
  • Various types of arc welding and grinding robot cables
Spatter resistance validation test

To simulate conditions of cable exposure to grinding sparks, the test piece is positioned 50 cm from the spark source and exposed to sparks generated by cutting a 40mm diameter carbon steel (S45C) bar with a cutter grinder for 30 seconds. The test piece is then checked for damage.
