    Quick and Easy Angling of Cable Connectors

In just a few steps, the new ibow, from igus, can be used to change a straight connector to an angled one in seconds. To ensure operational reliability, the connector need not be removed from the cable - 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.

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, the ibow is supplied 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.
