Utility supplies: AFC Cable Systems and sister company Kaf-Tech, both manufacturers of electrical products headquartered in New Bedford, MA, announce an expansion to their high quality line of electrical metallic tubing (EMT), flexible metal (Flex) and Liquidtight fittings for the electrical distribution industry. More than 150 new fittings items have been added. The new product offering is the first phase of a multi-phase fittings product extension.
The new products increase the number of applications for which fittings are now available. Many new items have been added to the Liquidtight category, including malleable Liquidtight fittings with aluminum or copper grounding lugs in insulated and uninsulated versions, tubular steel Liquidtight fittings (both uninsulated and insulated), as well as combo couplings to connect Liquidtight conduit to rigid conduit.
New AC/MC cable Flex products include 90° saddle type connectors with insulated throats, and double bite saddle type set screw couplings, which are ideal for connecting Flex, AC, MCI, MCI-A and HCF cables to outlets. Also new are combo couplings to connect flexible metal conduit to rigid or IMC conduit.
The expanded range of fittings is good news for those already purchasing cable from AFC Cable. Instead of multiple vendors shipping at different times, customers purchasing cable and Liquidtight products can now have access to a wider range of fittings – all shipped from the AFC warehouse so supplies arrive together. In addition to the convenience factor, customers are also expected to achieve freight savings.
