The e-spool flex 2.0 can be used wherever a cable must be moved freely during use and must be stowed away safely and cleanly after use

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]

e-spool in use

Mobile wind machine

e-spool - the alternative to the cable drum from igus is used in an extendable mobile wind machine. The e-spool scores here with significantly more flexibility, because unlike slip rings, cables and hoses for data, compressed air and fluids can also be connected end-to-end in one system and, above all, can be replaced or altered at any time.
