In 1959, ÖLFLEX® was the very first control cable to be designed with color-coded wires and was at the same time the first branded cable in the world. Today, ÖLFLEX® connecting and control cables are some of the most widely used in the world, and for good reason.

Lapp Kabel range of Olflex® flexible and oil-resistant connecting and control cables is one of Lapp’s most widely used and successful ranges globally. 

Olflex® cables can be used on an extensive range of industrial machinery and equipment, such as heating and cooling systems, wind power, buildings, medical technology, food and beverage, construction, vehicles and mobile equipment. The highly durable and flexible Olflex® cables are designed fulfil the most demanding requirements for electrical and mechanical properties and can feature resistance to flame, oil, chemicals, weather, abrasion and cuts.

Another major advantage of Olflex® cables is its flexibility in torsional applications. The cables can route and bend to conform to a variety of different machines without breaking or experiencing any additional wear.
