Scara Robot Cable Management:
Flexible & Made from Durable Polymers

High-speed applications, such as SCARA robots, can cause unsupported corrugated tubes to whip from side to side while the robot is in motion. Help stabilize them with e-rib, which is a highly engineered plastic “rib” that fills the joints of your existing corrugated tubes. It easily clips on and off and can be paired with mounting brackets for reinforcement at each end. We offer e-rib in a nominal width of 29mm with additional sizes coming soon. The sizes are independent of the corrugated tubing manufacturer.  Please note that current lead time is 2-4 weeks.  

We rigorously test all of our cable carriers each year 41,000ft2 testing facility at our headquarters in Cologne, Germany to ensure that your solution is durable and long-lasting. The e-rib, along with our other multi-axis cable carriers  and flexible cables, are guaranteed to last 36 months.
Benefits:
  • Modular system
  • Easy to retrofit
  • Can be delivered as an assembled system
  • Customizable for easy adjustment to different types of SCARA robots
  • Safe guidance of cables and hoses
Applications:
  • Automotive production
  • Medical laboratories
  • Vertical assembly
  • Palletizing

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.

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.
