e-spool flex mini

NEW: e-spool flex mini

With the mini version of the proven e-spool flex 2.0, the user can supply energy without a slip ring and, at the same time, transport data, air and fluids. A modular system enables flexible adaptation to the use in question. Simply unwind from the drum: this principle is now applicable in the case of short cable lengths as well and where the space available is very restricted. The-spool flex mini makes it possible.

Test for e-spool® flex pull-out forces

Tested for e-spool® flex pull-out forces

In its test laboratory, the largest in the industry, igus® compared the e-spool® flex with a competing product. The test evaluated the two products' pull-out forces
The results showed that the e-spool® pull-out forces were about 10 newtons, while those of the competing product were almost twice that
A: e-spool flex
B: Competitor product
C: Pull-out force [N]
D: Pull-out [m]
