igus’ CFX series provides strain relief for pneumatic hoses in e-chain cable carriers.
igus has introduced its CFX series clamp designed to provide strain relief for pneumatic hoses in e-chain cable carriers. The clamps feature pneumatic double tubs, blue inserts that enclose the hoses from top and bottom. When the technician turns the screw of the clamp, the clamp jaw does not press directly on the surface of the hose, but on the upper insert of the stacker saddle. As soon as it hits the lower insert, the optimum holding force is automatically achieved.
To provide protection for as many pneumatic hoses as possible, igus manufactures the blue stacker saddles in several sizes. The inserts are available as injection-molded versions for cable diameters of 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 millimeters. Additionally, it is possible to position two hoses next to each other in a stacker saddle for cables with diameters of 4 and 6 millimeters. Therefore, up to ten hoses can be accommodated in one clamp.
