Igus has introduced Micro Flizz, a complete cable carrier system that comprises cables, an energy chain and a guiding profile to safely guide energy, media and signal cables. It is a compact all-in-one alternative to busbars.

The energy chain has integrated ‘wings’, which firmly hold the e-chain energy chain in the aluminium guide channel and mechanically separate the upper and lower run with minimal friction, wear and noise. Integrated cable clamping also ensures the secure fixture of cables.

Micro Flizz is suitable for applications such as sliding and folding doors, moveable hand tools and camera/studio equipment. It can also be applied when replacing cable drums in sewerage plants.

The enclosed, easy-to-install system is said to be resistant to tough environmental conditions.

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.
