REIKU’s bio-based corrugated cable protection tubing combines outstanding bending cycle resistance with environmental benefits

REIKU’s corrugated cable protection tubing made from renewably sourced plastic is an environmentally friendly alternative to products made from conventional oil-based materials, and also offers tangible advantages in application. Under dynamic flexural fatigue stress, which is typical for many industrial robots, this product has the highest service life of all corrugated cable protection tubing in [...]

"Green" corrugated cable protection tubing from REIKU cannot not be recognized by its color. Like its counterparts made of oil-based materials, it is black or gray. Its big advantages become evident in continuous robot operation with high flexural fatigue stress, where the products have a significantly longer service life. One of the first users is b+m surface systems, a leading supplier of fully automated painting plants and paint application systems for surfaces with very high quality standards. Photo: REIKU
