e-skin: novel energy supply system

Advantages of the e-skin compared to conventional corrugated hoses:

The e-skin is a hose consisting of an upper and lower shell that form a sealed tube when connected to each other. It consists of igumid SK, a polymer material developed specifically for this. The simple and reclosable opening mechanism enables easy maintenance and inspection of the installed cables. Operating temperature +10 °C / +50 °C.
 
Typical areas of application:Fast, short, unsupported applications, standing and hanging applications, pick & place, printers, medical technology, all machines where corrugated tubes are used, display and semiconductor production

 

 


1 Mounting brackets: strong, with integrated strain relief
 
2 Small installation space: small bend radii
 
3 Cable-friendly: Defined minimum bend radius
 
4 Easy assembly: Upper and lower shell can be opened for easy filling
 
5  Cleanroom ISO Class 1: virtually no wear or abrasion
 
Reclosable opening mechanism (option): open and close like a zip fastener
 
7 Unsupported use due to stop-dogs on the upper shell of the e-skin®

CLEAN! 2018  

The improved corrugated hose for cleanroom applications received the 2nd prize in the 2018 Fraunhofer clean technology award.
