igus has introduced a unique strain relief system for energy chains that replaces the cable tie-wraps that are commonly used in industry. Cables and hoses are simply inserted into a honeycomb, called the CFU, and then closed. Compared to cable tie-wraps or other strain relief solutions, the engineer can save about 80 percent assembly and engineering time.
Once the cables and hoses are inserted into the CFU and closed, the outer walls of the honeycomb cavities lie gently and uniformly around the cables. The honeycomb system is assembled in seconds and is also extremely flexible, as new cables can be inserted or replaced by hand.
