Tribo-polymer specialist igus has designed five specialist tools for opening its energy chains, cutting the manual work time to open a metre length of chain from 33 seconds to within just two seconds. This speed and simplicity of operation also helps minimise machinery downtime.

igus assembly tools can reduce the manual work time to open a metre length of chain from 33 seconds to within just two seconds.

Although dismantling and reassembling energy chains with a simple screwdriver is easy, when igus purpose-designed assembly tools are used, energy chains can be opened in a fraction of the time.

Each of the tools perform a specific task, including opening E4.216, E6.29 and E61.29 energy chains, inserting separators, locking separators or shelves and crossbar opening.

In addition, services from simple assembling through to fully customised design and build right up to installation and commissioning are available through igus.

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
