The e-spool flex 2.0 is the igus version of a cable drum without a slip ring. Cable diameters from 5mm up to 15mm can be used. The cable is always safely routed through a feed-through to ensure that it is properly wound up at all times.
With the mini version of the proven e-spool flex 2.0, the user can supply energy without interruption (i.e. without a slip ring) or alternatively data, air or media. A modular system enables flexible adjustment to the application. Simply unwind from the drum: this principle is now also applicable in the case of short cable lengths and limited space. The e-spool flex mini makes it possible.

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
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]
The illustrated assembly aid enables you to assemble the e-spool flex 2.0 quickly and professionally.
With a newly developed cable reel for control panels, robot users avoid
"cable tangle" and tripping hazards in automated production. Since the new solution does not use slip rings, media, data and the power and signal supply of the emergency stop button can also be integrated into the system. Download the white paper to find out more.
Guide many different cables safely in very narrow spaces. No tensile stress on the cables
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.
