Since igus® launched the snap-open and (two-piece) e-tube in the mid 80s, many additional parts and innovations have supplemented the product range. e-tubes are usable in areas with hot chips, dirt and dust generated in wood processing, steel works, pulp factories, textiles, agriculture, coal-fired plants and in many other unfavorable environmental conditions. Go for the cost efficient, alternative Series R for higher speeds.
