igus e-skin cleanroom energy chains

The easily openable igus e-skin is an enclosed corrugated tube that is made of tribologically optimised, abrasion-resistant plastic, has a modular structure and can be filled quickly. To make the e-skin suitable for use in compact cleanrooms, it has now been fitted with a softer material. The e-skin soft can also be used in small installation spaces on short unsupported lengths. For very flat installation spaces, there is also a solution with a chamber design: the e-skin flat. Both energy chains are also very quiet: the e-skin soft had a value of 32.4 dBA and the e-skin flat, 29 dBA.

The e-skin soft is based entirely on the modular principle of the e-skin: the separable upper and lower shells of the energy chain can be easily put together by a ‘zipper’ to a fully enclosed tube, which is highly dustproof and water-resistant. This guarantees both cleanroom compatibility, quick filling and maintenance of the cables.

The e-skin flat is designed for very tight installation spaces, eg, in semiconductor manufacturing. It consists of a profile with three cable chambers, which are extruded from high-performance plastics. It allows a very small bend radius and a low clearance height. In the event of a need for maintenance, the cables can simply be pulled in without having to install a new energy supply system. The individual chambers are openable from the outside thanks to a zipper system, so that maintenance can be sped up.
