e-skin soft and e-skin flat for particle-free cable management

With the e-skin flat and the e-skin soft, igus offers two new space-saving energy chain systems for use in cleanroom applications. Developed for tight installation spaces on short, self-supporting travels, e-skin soft is made of a softer material than the standard e-skin. As the name suggests, e-skin flat is for very flat installation spaces. In noise tests, the e-skin soft had a value of 32.4dBA and the e-skin flat 29dBA - both quieter than alternative cleanroom cable management systems available on the market.

The new e-skin soft is based entirely on the modular principle of the proven e-skin. The upper and lower shells of the energy chain can be easily zipped together to make a fully enclosed tube, which is both dustproof and water-resistant. e-skin flat comes as standard with three chambers, which are extruded from high-performance plastic. These connect together to expand the system to guide more cables or, to reduce the number, simply cut one chamber off - this system allows any number of cables to be guided together. The innovative design is flat, allowing a tight bending radius. In contrast to alternative cable management systems, the cables in the e-skin flat are not shrink-wrapped but are inserted into the chambers - each of which can be opened and closed for quick cable installation or replacement, thanks to its zipper system.

Both e-skin flat and e-skin soft are available to order directly from stock. Upon request, the new energy chains are available as a ready-to-connect complete system with chainflex cables installed. igus stocks more than 918 IPA class 1 certified cables, which are developed specifically for use in energy chains - all of which have been tested under real conditions, enabling igus to offer a 36-month guarantee.
