e-skin flat ESD: for the highest level of safety and cleanliness in cleanrooms

igus has added an ESD variant specifically for highly sensitive cleanrooms to its e-skin flat series. The modular ribbon cable’s new material prevents the chain from becoming electrostatically charged while ensuring that it generates no particles, even during very fast movements. The modular design with individual pods also allows quick energy supply system filling.

In addition to particle-free cleanrooms, electronics and semiconductor industry production also requires machine components that are electrostatically dissipative. Even the smallest current surge from electrostatic charge can easily destroy the product. So, igus has added an ESD variant to its e-skin flat series. The new black e-skin flat is made of an electrostatically dissipative material. “The new material combines ESD approval, which is frequently required, with the proven e-skin flat’s low particle emissions. The chain produces almost no particles and dissipates electronic charges directly,” says Kira Weller, e-chain Product Manager at igus. “The new e-skin flat ESD gives us just the product our customers need to produce sensitive electronic components.” The new cable is used by such companies as Weiss, an automation specialist, in its high-speed HP70 pick & place unit, which comes into play in such applications as material handling in the medical and pharmaceutical industries.
