Flat cable guidance system: e-skin® flat

The cable guides for automation systems and robots in display and semiconductor manufacturing and in the production of LCD/LED panels must meet special requirements for freedom from particles.  In contrast to commercially available solutions with firmly defined flat cables, where stranding elements are firmly welded, the flat cable guidance system e-skin flat, offers chamber designs that can be opened. Flexible stranding elements, with or without connectors,  e-skin® flat with support chains, hoses and so on, can now be exchanged or added in a few minutes.

igus cleanroom laboratory

Since 2003, in new developments of cleanroom products, igus® has been co-operating with the Stuttgart Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology and Automation (IPA). The latest achievement of this collaboration: a cleanroom laboratory in Cologne.  

Real-world examples

e-skin® flat cable guidance system application example

Specialising in the development and manufacture of components for automation technology and a leader in the field of rotary indexing tables, the company Weiss GmbH wanted to find a cable lead-through to the middle of a tool whereby the lead-through could hold two sensor cables and two hoses, each with a diameter of four millimetres. The solution: the  flat cable guidance system e-skin flat from igus. Service life over 57 million double strokes.
