New sizes for opening, chip tight RX tube: TÜV tested

Problem solver for cable carrier systems in chip areas – new interior heights 62 and 73 mm

Chips and dirt can affect the service life of cables and hoses significantly. In 2009, igus® had addressed the problem and introduced an extremely dense, yet snap-open in the outer radius, in the form of a unique plastic E-Tube, which is now available in two additional sizes.

Snaps open in the outer radius

Smooth, curved outer contour - chips do not stick

Injection-molded 'sealing lip'

No holes, cracks, undercuts for chips to fall through

IP40 tested

iF Design award 2010

Interior separation and guide trough available

Options include ESD and high temperature (1,562°F)


Industries: Machine tools, machining (wood, metal, plastics, textile fibers, paper dust, etc.), general mechanical engineering

Extremely dense and snap-openable in its outer radius. Tests in the igus® laboratory confirmed the RX Tube offers high chip protection: Only 0.09 oz (2.6 g) chips were measured inside RX40 after 251,900 cycles. TÜV NORD CERT GmbH confirmed this with its IP40 tests.


IP tested
