e-spool all in one combines power, data, air and media all in one system
Published: 29 April 2014 - Marianne Evans
Designed to guide multiple cables within confined spaces, e-spool by igus, is an alternative to the classic cable drum, accommodating power, data, air and media together in one system.
Rigorously tested, both in the field and in the igus test laboratories, e-spool offers a reliable and durable guiding solution allowing movements in any direction, hence it is suitable for a number of fields of application: process cranes, mobile crane trucks, sorting plants or stage applications.
e-spool combines two different energy supply systems – a standard energy chain guided by one roller, with an integrated retaining spring, that provides the correct length and tension of the energy supply system, and an igus twisterband that performs rotational movements.
