  • Product sheet: C-Chain – continuously rotating energy chain

    Fri, 18 Sep 2015 13:44 GMT

    The C-Chain supplies grippers, sensor systems and other units with energy, date and media – rotating all the way around. Without superfluous start and return runs, the next position can now be directly approached in a continual movement, where loading and unloading, adhesion, drilling and so on can then take place. The chains are lightweight and reliable, with speeds of up to 8m/s possible. This allows extremely fast machine cycle times to be re-alised.
