Interior separation configurator for the e-skin®

With the interior separation configurator for the e-skin® corrugated tubes, you can create filling variants in just a few seconds and configure complete e-skin® corrugated tubes with interior separation and mounting brackets.

  • Easy to fit
  • Avoidance of filling errors due to integrated filling guidance
  • Automatic creation of a parts list and drawing with dimensioning
  • Easy to submit a request and order the complete corrugated tube with chainflex® cables and interior separations in the desired configuration.

Configure the interior separation now

Technical details

1.  Mounting brackets: structurally stable, with integrated strain relief
2.  Small installation space: small bend radii 
3.  Unsupported application due to stop-dogs on the upper shell of the e-skin®
4.  Cleanroom ISO Class 1: virtually no wear or abrasion
5.  Cable-friendly: defined minimum bend radius
6.  Easy assembly: upper and lower shell can be opened for easy filling

e-skin®

Bend radius of corrugated hoses

Corrugated hoses have the same bend radius along their entire length

Upper/lower shell of e-skin®

The e-skin® consists of two shells (upper/lower shell). The shells can be configured in order to define the nature of the movement involved

Inherent rigidity of corrugated hoses

Corrugated hoses have little or no inherent rigidity.

Short unsupported e-skin® lengths

e-skin® is suitable for short unsupported lengths in a small installation space (2) and has a defined bend radius (5)

Lateral application of force

Very little if any stability in respect of forces acting on the sides

Lateral stability of the e-skin®

Lateral stability thanks to the oval (6) geometry of the e-skin®

e-skin®

Corrugated hoses cannot be used unsupported

e-skin® for short unsupported lengths

e-skin® supports itself and can be used for short, unsupported lengths

e-skin®

Corrugated hoses for dynamic applications cannot be opened

Outer radius of e-skin®

e-skin® can be opened on its outer radius and filled quickly

Interior of e-skin

The interior of corrugated tubes cannot be divided into sections

Interior separation of e-skin®

e-skin® can be fitted with interior separation system


Tested in the igus® test laboratory for use in the real world

Continuous test


Continuous test

Developed for cleanroom applications, the e-skin® SK has been tested under real conditions with 6.4 million double strokes at 3m/s in the laboratory.

Bending test


Bending test

The standard bending tests show how flexible the e-skin® soft is. It only bends, even under loads that would break other energy chains.

Noise level measurement

Noise level measurement

This test shows how quiet 'e-skin' corrugated tubes and 'e-skin® flat' cleanroom cables are. Compared to flat ribbon cables of competitors, the noise level of the e-skin® flat is only 29dB(A).


Suitable cables for cleanroom applications

  • 918 types with cleanroom classification IPA Class 1
  • 166 types with cleanroom classification IPA Class 2
  • With highly abrasion-resistant jacket materials
  • Tested and inspected with a 36 month guarantee
