Chips and dirt can significantly affect the service life of cables and hoses. Fully enclosed RX energy tubes from igus feature smooth, rounded outer contours for protection against accumulation of debris and chips, as well as dust, dirt, oil, high humidity levels and temperature extremes.
Available in four pitch length sizes (32mm, 40mm, 48mm and 56mm) the RX e-tubes are suitable for short, self-supporting lengths such as those found inside machine tools. They can be dismantled and reassembled quickly and easily for maintenance and servicing using a standard flat-blade screwdriver.
Using the igus online configurator, the RX e-tubes can be ordered as ready-to-fit units – assembled to size and fitted with cables and hoses, suitable connectors and even including a guide tray – enabling machine builders to reduce assembly times and storage costs.
