Sumida flexible connections



Flexible solutions made with copper flat cables


PANTA© FFCs are flat copper conductors of various dimensions laminated with high-quality insulation foils. They guarantee significant competitive advantages over conventional cables. Compared with standard round wire cables, flat cables have lower weight and higher bending fatigue strength.

Product description

PANTA© FFCs are flat copper conductors of various dimensions laminated with high-quality insulation foils. They guarantee significant competitive advantages as compared with conventional cables. They combine minimum wall thickness with the precisely defined constant electrical values.

A flat flex cable has the following advantages:

  • Flexibility through flat copper conductors
  • Highly vibration resistant
  • Reliable and fracture-safe connection
  • Weight reduction
  • High thermal resistance
  • High chemical resistance (meets automotive requirements)
  • Wiring errors are avoided
  • Hydrolyse resistance
  • Highest flexibility
  • Suitable for safety applications (e. g. air bags)
  • Savings of cost and time during the process by simple and fast assembly

Because of this numerous benefits, flexible film cable is suitable for the most diverse applications. FFC-cables are used in the automobile industry in safety relevant components as well as for comfort- and infotainment components. They are used in mechanical engineering, industrial, manufacturing and industrial robots and also in various fields in which electronic and mechanical components meet, such as computers, printers, copying machines, or even in consumer electronics such as CD, DVD, or Blu-ray-Players. Particular requirements for precision and stability have been raised in the test and measurement, and medical technology.
