    Given the cost premium of high-flex cables, appropriate attention should be given to the nuances of how cables should be handled and installed in the cable track (C-track, drag chain etc.). Information on this is readily available on the internet from numerous sources that all generally agree in sum and substance. Yet once or twice a year, a manufactures receive an exceedingly damaged (generally corkscrewed) cable back for examination. Occasionally they learn something that they can use to improve cable designs. More often than not, what they find is that there has been improper dress-out of the cable on the machine. Rather than rehash all the basic considerations, this whitepaper focuses on the most common root causes for premature cable failure and how to avoid them.
