Test for e-spool® flex pull-out forces

Tested for e-spool® flex pull-out forces

In its test laboratory, the largest in the industry, igus® compared the e-spool® flex with a competing product. The test evaluated the two products' pull-out forces
 
The results showed that the e-spool® pull-out forces were about 10 newtons, while those of the competing product were almost twice that
 
A: e-spool flex
B: Competitor product
C: Pull-out force [N]
D: Pull-out [m]
