In 1957, Oskar Lapp, founder of the company, developed ÖLFLEX®, the first industrially manufactured control cable in the world.  Today, about 2,500 employees in 50 companies around the world contribute daily to the Lapp with their dedication, knowledge and ideas.


As a result, the range of products extends from cable, cables accessories, cable handling systems, cable harnessing to industrial connectors and communication technology. Based on mutually adapted systems, the range of products and services has been continuously extended over the years. The Lapp provides you a unique product and service portfolio with manufacture competence.


Power & Control Cables


ÖLFLEX® has become synonymous with power and control cables. Our flexible and oil-resistant cables satisfy the highest demands and can withstand even the very toughest conditions. In 1959, ÖLFLEX® was the very first control cable to be designed with colour-coded wires. Today, ÖLFLEX® cables are some of the most widely used in the world.


Data communication systems


Our high-quality UNITRONIC® data network cables and field bus components provide a forward-looking solution for all applications in industrial machinery and plant engineering. From transmission of simple control signals to field bus signals in complex network structures – we offer a dependable cabling and connection solution for almost every situation.


Data communication systems for ETHERNET technology


Our ETHERLINE® products open up a secure, fast and reliable path to the future of Ethernet applications, e. g. PROFINET®. The systems are made up of durable and robust cables and connection components for passive and active network technology, and deliver an effective solution for almost any application, particularly in an industrial environment.


Optical transmission systems


HITRONIC® fibre optic cables make transmitting large data volumes easy: fault free, bug proof and at almost light speed. Even electromagnetic radiation does not interfere with the transmission. The HITRONIC® range includes the ideal solution for indoor or outdoor use, for demanding conditions, and even for use in power chains.


Industrial connectors


EPIC® industrial connectors can be found everywhere in industrial machinery and plant engineering, for measuring, control and drives. EPIC® is a flexible system of housings, inserts, and contacts: all extremely robust, absolutely safe and simplicity itself to assemble


Cable glands


Simply feed in the cable and twist. That’s it. Our SKINTOP® cable glands provide secure connections in no time. The universal systems are simple but effective. They secure and centre the cable, hermetically seal it and guarantee optimum strain relief.


Protective cable conduit systems and cable carrier systems


The universal range of SILVYN® protection and guidance systems protect cables effectively against dust, moisture, mechanical, thermal and chemical influences. The versatile SILVYN® CHAIN range of energy supply chains also protects and guides cables in dynamic applications.


Marking systems


Requirement: permanent marking. Solution: FLEXIMARK®. These sophisticated systems mean that a clear overview inside a control cabinet is no longer just a pipe dream. From simple labels to electronic markings, the FLEXIMARK® range is guaranteed to be permanent.
