Microscopically connectivity technology for high-quality applications

The connectivity technology of TKH is so uniquely microscopic that it is more than ever in demand in various markets such as medical and industrial, machine building, measurement and control technology, and in automation.

Because manufacturing them is extremely accurate and professional work, the miniature cables are produced in dust-free rooms by specially trained employees. Miniature cables with diameters of up to 16 micrometres are manufactured here. Any contamination in both the cable core and the outer sheath is ruled out and the complete electrical and mechanical properties of the cables are guaranteed at the same time however minuscule they may be. Thanks to this, TKH’s connectivity technology can be used for the chosen application immediately, without further verification of quality and characteristics. In fact, TKH provides its customers with the convenience and cost benefits of a one-stop-shop.

Choice of materials

The overall functionality and life-span of the specialty cable are largely determined by the choice of the right material. Thermal, electrical or chemical mechanical properties play a role here. For example, there is no ‘electrical leakage’ in the cable and not even the slightest amount of gases or odours are released. The cables remain flexible even under extreme temperatures and can resist external influences without losing quality. If the thickness of the cable is the determining factor for the system in which it is used, TKH uses specially wound PTFE foil of extremely high quality, which guarantees the electrical and mechanical properties of the cable.

Controlling endoscopy camera systems

The miniature cables are also used in modern inspection systems controlled by camera and laser technology. The modern endoscopy camera systems in aircraft engines are a good example of this. These make it quicker and easier to search for such things as oxidation formation in turbines or the reliability of welds. If necessary, these inspection systems can be equipped with grippers to perform repair or maintenance. Modern robotization thanks to ultra-thin TKH specialty cables.
