NEW: e-spool flex mini 2.0

The mini version of the proven e-spool flex 2.0 enables its user to conduct energy without interruption (that is, without a slip ring) or with data, air, or media (optional). Its modular system allows flexible adaptation to the application in question. Simply unwind: this principle can now also be applied to short cable lengths and very limited spaces. Twice the extension length of the competitor product, as verified by tests in the igus laboratory.

Tested for e-spool flex pull-out forces

Tested 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 ten newtons, while those of the competing product were almost twice that.

A: e-spool flex
B: Competing product
C: Pull-out force [N]D: Pull-out [m]

Tested for the e-spool flex mini extension length

Tested e-spool flex mini extension length

In its test laboratory, the largest in the industry, igus compared the e-spool flex mini with a competing product. The test evaluated the two products' extension lengths.

The results showed that the e-spool flex mini extension length was about three metres, while that of the competing product was only half that.
