Plastic Energy Tube protects moving cables in CNC operations.

Press Release Summary:

Inwardly tight, R68 foldable plastic energy tube provides protection against chips of any size while simultaneously guiding moving cables, resulting in low abrasion during operation of CNC machines, lathes, mills, and sawing machines. Smooth and convex outer contour, along with tight production tolerances, ensures that no chips get between stoppers. Chips fall out upon contact with surface and are deposited in stop system of energy tube.

Original Press Release:

Protection for Moving Cables in CNC Machinery Applications

The plastic energy tube RX, from igus has been designed to successfully resist chips when put through even the most demanding of operations.

If moving cables during the operation of CNC machines, lathes, mills and sawing machines required protection, the energy chains themselves at the same time need to be inwardly tight and simultaneously guide the cables so that there is low abrasion.

For this specific purpose, igus has developed its first foldable plastic energy tube R68. The latest energy tube RX now offers comprehensive protection against chips of any size.

On its smooth and convex outer contour, the chips simply fall out of on contact with the surface and are deposited in the stop system of the energy tube.

The RX tube offers the best protection due to its especially smooth contours and tight production tolerances meaning no chips get between the stoppers.
