The production of microchips, flat screens, implants, pharmaceutical products or micro- and nano-products would be inconceivable without a clean, pure or high-purity manufacturing environment. Any contamination has a direct negative impact on products and processes and costs a lot of money to the manufacturer.
For the area of energy supply, igus has therefore developed a modular corrugated tube and a flat cable guidance system for cleanrooms. They supply machines with data, media and energy and minimise abrasion. As a result, there are no particles that can get into the air. Delimiting rules are adhered to and contamination is avoided.
With "zipper" opening principle, combines the advantages of the e-skin SK and the e-skin soft SKS
The e-skin flat single pods consist of individually connectable cable chambers. It is compact, modular and easy to fill.
The e-skin has been specially developed for cleanroom applications. In the laboratory, it withstood more than 6.4 million double strokes at
3m/s under realistic conditions.
The standard bending tests show how flexible the e-skin soft is. It only bends, even under loads that would break other energy chains.
This test shows how quiet 'e-skin' corrugated tubes and 'e-skin flat' cleanroom cables are. Compared to flat ribbon cables of competitors, the noise level of the e-skin flat is only 29dB(A).

When do I need an e-skin for my machine?
The e-skin received 2nd prize in the context of the Fraunhofer clean technology award 2018.
