E2 R - Two-piece e-tubes - chip protection - very silent operation

Since igus® launched the snap-open and (two-piece) e-tube in the mid 80s, many additional parts and innovations have supplemented the product range. e-tubes are usable in areas with hot chips, dirt and dust generated in wood processing, steel works, pulp factories, textiles, agriculture, coal-fired plants and in many other unfavorable environmental conditions. Go for the cost efficient, alternative Series R for higher speeds.

For higher speeds and a silent operation

 
Principle of opening

To open the E.Tubes, prize the lid with a screwdriver and then simply remove.

 
 
e-chain® selection aids

You can find the right e-chain® quickly by entering concrete parameters and with the aid of a comparison table.

Installation instructions

Joining and separating of the E-Tubes.
