Igus has released a new series of energy tubes resistant to most forms of commonly encountered debris produced during CNC machining.
The RX energy tube featured a rounded contour covering that has been smoothed to be chip resistant. The tube will not accumulate performance-impacting chips, dirt, dust, lubricant, or other types of material shed during application processing. The tubes, available in diameters up to 2.05 in, can be moved around the work area due to their tight construction that prevents loose, sagging performance which can be dangerous.
The RX segmented tube appearance is also durable for placement and winding around complex geography machines.
You can view the video below to see the RX cable carrier during demonstration.
