SCARA cable solution

Durable energy supply on the SCARA robot


igus® has developed the e-rib to safely guide cables guided by corrugated hose. In combination with the reinforcements at both ends of the corrugated hose as well as the rotary unions, this solution is ideally suited for high-speed SCARA applications.
 
The e-rib fills the joints of the corrugated hose to stabilise it in such a way that it can only move in one direction. The corrugated hose has an unsupported length due to the lateral guide elements. As a retrofit, the e-rib allows an upgrade of existing applications in just a few steps. The e-rib is independent of the hose manufacturer. At first we are offering this solution in the nominal width of 29mm.

Did you know that you can have your e-rib recycled as
part of the igus® chainge Recycling Program at the end of its life cycle...

What is behind the Scara cable solution?

Corrugated tube dynamically reinforced

The reinforcement for existing corrugated tube systems. The e-rib is clipped onto a corrugated hose. The new sizes are independent of the hose manufacturer. The e-rib stabilises the corrugated hose so that it can only move in one direction. With its lateral guide elements, the corrugated hose requires no support along its length due to the e-rib.
Initially we offer the nominal width 29 for the Scara robots.
