igus® has developed a unique universal strain relief for cables and hoses within e-chains®. This uses soft elements to surround the cables and hold them securely in place without damaging them. Visually similar to a honeycomb, the flexible structure adapts to different cable diameters, creating a universal strain relief. The simple closing mechanism, openable on both sides, makes it easy to use the system without special tools and can be changed at any time. The assembly is simple due to the special design of the closure mechanism. A screwdriver is inserted in its lateral recess to reduce the force on the screw, which can then be more easily assembled and disassembled. The compact, flush mounting design also allows use in gliding applications. When compared with conventional cable fixation with cable ties, the honeycomb structure saves space and assembly time.
