Overmoulded Railway Technology Cable Solutions

SAB Bröckskes provides high-quality railway cable solutions, featuring high material adaptability and ‘plug-and-play’ abilities.

Connection cables for railway sites are often subject to demanding requirements and potentially harsh environmental conditions in daily use.

A well thought-out system solution is a key factor for reliability and completes the individual application.

The special cable manufacturer SAB is expanding its range of railway cables with a new plug-and-play solution with overmoulding, made of medical-grade silicone or thermoplastic elastomers as a consistent implementation of market requirements.

In order to achieve a secure and smooth material connection between the electrical line and the plug, all the necessary components are fine-tuned to each other.

The results flow directly into production. This benefits the manufacturer of marine components as they can rely on the proven support of the biocompatible base material prototype and 0 series through manufacturing lengths starting at 100m.

SAB medical product manager Marc Gerlatzek said: “This can only be achieved through constant dialogue with customers.

“We count on our material diversity, experience and constant investment in the machine park at the site in Viersen.”

Possibilities for overmoulded plugs and nozzles are available for nearly the complete cabling solution of the SABmed Line material family.

Railway cables with the flexible and smooth SABmed T can be engineered and customer customised to produce thermoplastic and elastomeric materials with better haptics than conventional thermoplastics

If a railway cable with UL approval is needed, the material SABmed S UL is used.

The base material can be offered as a platinum cross-linked variant, with an ultra-flexible sheath or with a non-adhesive surface.

New developments such as autoclavable USB 3.0 cable are already being designed by SAB Bröckskes with an outlook to possible overmoulding.

Manufacturers of railway devices will be able to use this complete system solution as a tailor-made, plug-and-play product ‘from a single source’ for greater design freedom in the development of devices.
