Cable Management With Cable Tie Mounts

Cable Management With Cable Tie Mounts

There are very few types of applications today that don’t require the use of electronics or electrical components. With electronics or automation systems, there are several additional factors to consider in the design of components, structures, and projects.

One of the issues that is often overlooked, particularly on projects with multiple specialized service providers, is how the system will work together as a whole. A good example of this is how cable management will be integrated into the physical structure and the construction crew and the electronics team and the electrical engineers and design team.

In most cases, particularly when the structure is metal or metal and concrete composite, there will be the need for durable, strong cable tie mounts that can attach to a base material that can be a challenge to work with.

Welding the Mounts

In the past, the go-to option for metal structures or components is to use a standard type of resistance welding process or to fasten the cable tie mounts by drilling a hole and then using a screw or bolt system to tighten it into place.

While these do work, they are slow and time-consuming. A better option is to use stud welding to attach specifically designed cable tie mounts in one simple process that takes just seconds per mount.

Design

With these types of cable tie holders, the design incorporates insertion ramps and coined edges to the mounts that allow for fast, effortless installation as well as non-abrasive surfaces to avoid damage to the cable.

Additionally, these designs can include the anti-roll-out wings, which are ideal for holding the cable in place. With slots through either of the wings, it is easy to quickly tie the cable in place using zip ties, ensuring the cable will be secured and held in place in a managed, organized fashion throughout the project.
