e-skin soft and e-skin flat ensure particle-free cable management in compact and flat installation spaces

With the e-skin flat and the e-skin soft, igus offers two new space-saving energy chain systems for use in cleanroom applications. Developed for tight installation spaces on short, self-supporting travels, e-skin soft is made of a softer material than the standard e-skin. As the name suggests, e-skin flat is for very flat installation spaces. In noise tests, the e-skin soft had a value of 32.4 dBA and the e-skin flat 29 dBA...
