HELUKABEL Group Grows with Two New Acquisitions

DCS HELUKABEL Group Grows with Two New Acquisitions 1 400

May 12, 2022

 

HELUKABEL, a leading international manufacturer and supplier of cables, wires and cable accessories, recently announced two acquisitions to further grow its core competency in the field of industrial automation. The two latest companies to join the HELUKABEL Group are ekd gelenkrohr GmbH, a drag chain manufacturer, and Sangel Systemtechnik, an industrial cable assembly manufacturer. 

For the group, the acquisitions are important steps toward becoming an electrical system and solution provider. As of now, HELUKABEL is the only company in the world that manufactures both cables and wires as well as energy drag chains.

“Our goal is to supply customers not only with individual components, but with complete, pre-assembled and ready-to-use system assemblies,” says HELUKABEL CEO Marc Luksch. “This means that the end-users have less work to do and can turn to one contact partner for all their questions related to connection technology.” 

These new additions, combined with HELUKABEL’s existing strengths in cable manufacturing and robotic protection systems engineering via its Robotec Systems subsidiary, enable it to broaden its international activities in automation cable system technology.

“We are very happy to have achieved a succession plan with HELUKABEL, which will secure our team’s jobs for the long term,” explain previous owners Ansgar and Holger Klein. 

About the Sangel Systemtechnik Acquisition 

Founded in 1996, Sangel Systemtechnik has become one of the leading manufacturers of high-quality, industrial cable assemblies and complete system assemblies for mechanical and plant engineering. The company has already been working closely with HELUKABEL for many years.

“We are looking forward to further intensifying our partnership, and through resulting synergies to meet the ever-increasing demands of our customers,” explains Managing Director Frank Sangel, who, alongside the rest of the management team, will remain on board.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
