The motion plastics specialist igus has now developed a unique strain relief system with a honeycomb structure for its energy supply systems. Cables and hoses can simply and gently be pressed into the honeycomb. It is then closed, whereby the outer walls of the honeycomb cavities are pushed gently but extremely tightly around the cables. In this way, the structure simply adapts to the cable diameters.
The honeycomb can be mounted in seconds; in comparison to the often used cable tiewraps or other strain relief solutions, the user saves about 80 percent assembly time. The new system saves space and protects the cables in the e-chain. It is also much more flexible, as the system is easy to open, to insert new cables or to replace them.
