Making cables and hoses in motion last longer

07 April 2015

Chips and dirt can significantly affect the service life of cables and hoses.  Igus believes it can offer a solution.

Its fully-enclosed RX energy tubes  feature smooth, rounded outer contours for maximum 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 said to be 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, 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.
