Corrugated hose 2.0: igus presents new ideas in energy supply16-04-2015

With the e-skin and e-shell, discover new options for flexible and affordable cable guiding

Hanover/Cologne, April 15, 2015 – In machinery and equipment construction, as well as in medical and automotive industries, corrugated hoses are an integral part of the energy supply system. At the Hannover Messe, the Cologne-based igus GmbH presents an entirely new idea: the e-skin. This easy-to-open hose can self-supporting contrast to comparable products, and can even be used in the clean room for short unsupported lengths. Existing corrugated hose systems can obtain a more defined movement with the new snap-on e-shell.
