Scara Robot Cable Management:
Flexible & Made from Durable Polymers

High-speed applications, such as SCARA robots, can cause unsupported corrugated tubes to whip from side to side while the robot is in motion. Help stabilize them with e-rib, which is a highly engineered plastic “rib” that fills the joints of your existing corrugated tubes. It easily clips on and off and can be paired with mounting brackets for reinforcement at each end. We offer e-rib in a nominal width of 29mm with additional sizes coming soon. The sizes are independent of the corrugated tubing manufacturer.  Please note that current lead time is 2-4 weeks.  

We rigorously test all of our cable carriers each year 41,000ft2 testing facility at our headquarters in Cologne, Germany to ensure that your solution is durable and long-lasting. The e-rib, along with our other multi-axis cable carriers  and flexible cables, are guaranteed to last 36 months.


  • Modular system
  • Easy to retrofit
  • Can be delivered as an assembled system
  • Customizable for easy adjustment to different types of SCARA robots
  • Safe guidance of cables and hoses
  • Automotive production
  • Medical laboratories
  • Vertical assembly
