Snap-Open Tubes Weather the Storm of Machine Tool Debris



EAST PROVIDENCE, RI (August 29, 2002)--the Snap-open Energy Tube cable carrier from igus® inc. has been put to the test by our customers. The Energy Tube withstood a barrage of medium-sized metal chips at temperatures of up to 1600° F without penetration. Chips were then removed easily with a brush and the Energy Tube's stability and performance were not compromised.

Energy Tubes are available in 800 different types and a full range of sizes, configurations and features. All styles feature removable or snap-open lids providing conduit availability at any and every link. When closed, these lids interconnect and lay flat for maximum protection.

Polymer Tubes protect the energy supply conduits effectively and economically. In addition, they defend cables and hoses from disintegration, avoid abrasion and prolong life. The advanced design of an igus enclosed polymer guidance track provides time and money-saving techniques for installation and maintenance. Any lingering concerns about choosing a polymer carrier over metal are also dispelled by the proven strength and durability of the igus tube design.
