Cable management: a lightweight alternative to corrugated tubes

31 October 2015

igus has extended its range of energy supply systems with the introduction of ‘e-skin’ a lightweight, versatile alternative to conventional corrugated tubes.

The easy-to-open hose is suitable for a variety of delicate applications, where demands on the energy supply systems are not particularly high, and can even be used in the clean-room for short unsupported lengths.

Comprising an upper and lower shell, which when fitted together is completely closed, the e-skin is simple to open and close - one of the many advantages e-skin has to offer compared with corrugated tubes.

e-skin has a defined movement direction and can also support itself. It can therefore be used as a horizontal energy supply for short unsupported lengths. In addition, the modular tube can be extended and offers more space than round corrugated tubes, due to its oval design. Interior separation modules enable cable-friendly cable guiding.

The simple and reusable opening mechanism allows for trouble-free maintenance and inspection of the cables. e-skin can also be tailored to an individual application and is available in a variety of materials and various colours.
