According to igus, it is easy to open and close the zipper e-chain and e-tube energy chains that feature the zip-fastening function.

igus says it is one of the most popular energy chain series being deployed in both sophisticated and industrial applications, including robotics and machine building, and that the zipper cuts installation time significantly and requires no specialist tools.

The small pitch of the zipper e-chain ensures low-noise operation, even at accelerations of 100m/s2 and more. The zipper e-tube is fully-enclosed to ensure excellent protection against chip and dirt damage and can be opened and closed in the same, fast manner.

The modular design of the zipper lid allows the energy chains to be lengthened and shortened to customer requirements. As with all e-chains from igus, interior separation is possible.

The zipper e-chain and e-tube from igusare certified for use in clean room environments, and are available with UL94-VO classification upon request.

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.
