igus has developed the R2.75, a tough, cost-effective energy tube for the machine tool, woodworking and textile industries. The e-tube is also suitable for general mechanical engineering applications. The fully enclosed design of the e-tube, with an inner height of 75mm, ensures that no external debris can get inside to damage the cables and hoses.

R2.75 E2

The e-tube lids have a hinge system, enabling them to be opened from either side. This allows for faster filling of cables and hoses as well as easier access in service. In addition, the double-stop dog system makes for a strong tube that can carry high fill weights.

The e-tube is fitted with closed mounting brackets using aluminium lids with integrated c-profile rails. This allows all cables to be correctly anchored using the full range of igus strain-relief products.

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
