Corrugated e-skin® tube is available in an enclosed version and a version with chambers that can be opened individually. This flexibility is a unique innovation on the market so far. Furthermore, e-skin has sufficient inherent rigidity and a defined bend radius (55 to 100mm). The oval geometry ensures lateral stability. Short unsupported lengths are possible, even in small installation spaces. Conventional corrugated hoses do not offer this possibility. In addition, the energy supply is very quiet. Its noise level is only 29dB(A), 5dB(A) lower than that of conventional clean cables.
e-skin® Hybrid SKY
For unsupported length up to 1.4mm and installation space from 200mm
Create filling variants in just a few seconds and configure complete e-skin® corrugated tubes with interior separation and mounting brackets.
Corrugated tube e-skin® is certified according to the classification ISO class by IPA Fraunhofer Institute:

An abrasion-resistant e-skin corrugated tube from igus is used in machines for the production of printed circuit boards and semiconductors. Airborne-dust is no longer a problem with the e-skin.
The e-skin® corrugated tube is used in lifting systems in the pharmaceutical sector or in biotechnology. It is robust, modular and can be shortened as necessary.
The e-skin® corrugated tube convinced the engineers at Mingseal. The unique openable corrugated tube for cleanrooms, which consists of an upper and lower shell, united the engineers' requirements with regard to accessibility, inherent rigidity, compactness and, of course, the highest cleanroom suitability according to ISO Class 1. In future, the compact e-skin® series SKS20 will be installed in new machines.
