HEW Hybrid Cables

Whether industrial robots, machine tools or medical equipment for patient care – nowadays operational processes demand a multitude of electrical cables in the smallest of spaces. In addition to the classic power line, there is a need for data lines such as control lines, servo lines, BUS lines or signal lines.

Instead of handling different individual cables, our hybrid cables enable multifunctional combinations of different types of cables under a common sheath. Thus, for example, energy, optical and electrical data, signals, gases or liquids can be transmitted simultaneously in a hybrid cable specially designed for you.


Why Hybrid Lines from HEW?

Because our solutions reduce your costs but increase performance.

Due to the intelligent combination of power lines with data lines, control lines or signal lines, there are immense advantages for your company. This not only saves material during production, but also space and working time during assembly and installation.

In order to provide a fail-safe function over the entire life cycle, both the structure of the hybrid cable and its choice of materials are precisely matched to the intended use

Whether for fast connection of industrial robots, processing and machine tools or for use in medical technology – our hybrid cables offer both the trouble-free and fail-safe combination of power and media supply as well as data transmission

Depending on the application and requirements, our hybrid cables are resistant to the following:

  • Mechanical effects such as bending, friction, vibration and torsion
  • Liquids, oils, greases, chemicals
  • disinfectants
  • Heat and/or cold
  • Flames, flying sparks
  • Electromagnetic disturbances
  • Effects of environmental factors, e.g. UV radiation
  • Hydrolysis and microbes

as well as ...

  • Halogen-free
  • Flame-retardant
  • Self-extinguishing
  • Surface finished
  • Sterilisable
  • Biocompatible
  • Almost adhesion free

The Best Material for Every Cable

The materials used by HEW-KABEL ensure optimum function of the hybrid cables even under extreme operating conditions.

Highly flexible copper cables

HEW-KABEL produces both flexible and highly flexible copper cables in conductor classes 5, 6 and 7 as well as in numerous cross-sections.


Polyurethane (PUR)

The thermoplastic insulation and sheathing material offers numerous advantages for use in industrial environments due to its special properties.

Silicone (HEW Silindo®)

Silicone is flexible and biocompatible. This is why silicone cables are often found in medical technology. With the Silindo surface developed by HEW-KABEL, conventional silicone haptics are permanently improved even further.

The Right Solution For Every Task

Hybrid cables are used in numerous industries for a wide variety of applications. 
Therefore, we can only present a small excerpt of possible areas of application on this site.

However, due to our excellent competence in materials and patented manufacturing processes,
we are able to create hybrid cables for almost any task and according to your requirements – even as miniature cables or flat cables.

Example Applications in ROBOTICS

Our servo cable optimised for industrial applications brings together the interference-free combination of power supply and data transmission under adverse conditions.

In the example shown, the power line (for supplying power to the motor) has been extended to include a shielded control pair (for operating the motor brake). Cable construction and material selection meet the special requirements for constantly moving use over a long period of time.

Example Applications in MEDICINE

Special alloys and materials allow for application-optimised haptics, sterilisability or biocompatibility, e.g. cytotoxicity according to DIN EN ISO 10992-5. For dental medical equipment or dental chairs, for example, our cables combine electrical connections as well as water supply or air supply through built-in PTFE hoses.


Hybrid special cables for surgical robots are designed to be particularly resistant to tension and torsion. Highly flexible and biocompatible cables combine, for example, optical fibres, coaxial elements, single wires and strain relief.
