Post-fitting angling of cable connectors

To offer engineers the opportunity to change a straight connector to an angled one in seconds igus has introduced the new ibow. To ensure operational reliability, the connector need not be removed from the cable – engineers can just slide it on, bend the cable, fix and it’s ready to use.

With this simple injection moulded part, igus allows flexible connection of cables to a machine, whereby the angle of connection is freely selectable. The angle adapter can be installed either during assembly or retrospectively on existing cables.

By using the igus ibow, the connector does not have to be removed from the cable, which saves time and is also safer. As soon as the cable, complete with connector, has been pushed through the adapter and angled, it is simply fixed with a cable tie. In this way, it can also be removed easily again later, if required.

Depending on the customer's requirements, igus supplies the ibow as an individual part in various installation sizes or already harnessed together with the appropriate cables. Users can also specify the desired colour or add additional individual labels.
