Corrugated Tube for Cable Protection Gains Cleanroom Classification

The upper and lower "shells" of the e-skin are joined together quickly and easily to provide cleanroom-compatible energy supply.

"In many industries, such as medical and pharmaceutical technology and production, contamination and air purity is absolutely essential," said an igus spokesperson. "Any contamination can have a damaging impact on products and processes and incur costs and loss of profits. The e-skin corrugated tube from igus is designed to provide a safe, high-strength and flexible energy supply system without generating airborne particles that can contaminate the environment."

The design and material of the e-skin were the major factors in the acquisition of the IPS ISO Class 1 certification through the Fraunhofer Institute. The corrugated tube is comprised of tribologically optimized, abrasion resistant plastic "shells" that can easily be joined with a zipper type mechanism to form a fully enclosed tube, which is highly resistant to dust, water and other materials. This simultaneously provides the cleanroom-approved operation, quick installation and long-term protection of cables and hoses.

The easy-to-assemble e-skin is lightweight with a stiff design and defined direction of motion, making it useful for small spaces and short unsupported distances. Interior separation is also available for increased protection of cables and hoses.
