igus® (East Providence, RI) has won two awards as part of this year's iF product design competition. A panel judged that the company’s e-spool—a variation on traditional cable drums—exceeded its exacting standards. The innovative design guides cables and hoses telescopically and is ideal for restricted spaces. A retention spring provides the correct length and tension of the chain. Applications include lighting equipment, because of the inherent lack of space. Triflex® R TRLF is an easy-to-fill and cost-effective cable carrier designed for three-axis movement, explains the company. With its round design, Triflex R cable carriers are ideal for robotic applications due to their smooth movement around the contours of a robot. This latest addition to the range has links that can be easily flipped open to fill or retrofit cables and hoses.
