PANTA<sup>©</sup> FFC

PANTA© FFC – Flexible solutions from copper flat conductors

With the PANTA© FFC cables, SUMIDA flexible connections GmbH offers you flexible flat cables for a wide range of applications. The flexible foil cables of the PANTA© FFC series are created by laminating flat copper strips in a wide variety of dimensions with high-quality insulation foils. They combine the smallest wall thicknesses with precisely defined, constant electrical values.

  • Widespread use in automotive and industrial electronics and medical technology
  • Flexibility due to flat copper conductors
  • Highest vibration resistance
  • Small installation space required as well as significant weight reduction
  • High thermal load capacity and media resistance (meet automotive requirements)
  • Suitable for control current and supply current
  • Use of new ZZZIP® copper tape
Customer benefits

Clockspring Cable

Due to its high flexibility and weight savings, flat conductor technology has become indispensable in the automotive, industrial and also the consumer segment. Airbag technology, interior wiring and infotainment components are typical applications in the automotive sector. Here, PANTA© FFC cables are installed in winding spring cassettes for steering column switch modules, among other things.

In addition to flexible flat cables, we also manufacture complete clockspring flat cables for the automotive industry. Here, our flexible flat cables are equipped with punched grids and connector systems and completed by resistance welding and overmolding.

SUMIDA flexible connections GmbH produces, in addition to long-band technology, steering wheel modules in loop-back technology (short-band technology), which meet the highest demands on production technology with smaller bending radii and (with 35µm) significantly thinner cables.
