E6.1 energy chains from Igus are designed specifically for use in scientific cleanrooms where it is imperative that environmental contamination is kept to a minimum.

Equipment in these areas operates at high speeds and is designed to generate very little dust and particles through wear. The E6.1 energy chain is particularly suitable for areas that require low vibration, low noise and high accelerations.

Its elastic spring element that connects the links of the chain together prevents movement between the joints and ensures less friction and abrasion to the cables and hoses it carries.

The E6.1 cable management system is available with a range of design options, is rapid to install and offers security to cables and hoses in challenging environments.

Key product specifications

  • ISO Class 1 and PA approved
  • Energy chain rotation direction can be altered easily
  • Links can be reversed to increase or decrease the camber
  • The E6.1 can be shortened and extended easily

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.
