Igus’s range of Chainfix saddle clamps fix cables within energy chains, providing strong and secure strain relief in extreme environments such as those with high pull forces and temperature extremes.

Quick and easy to install, Igus laboratory test results show that tensile strength can be as much as three times higher than that of standard clamps (for example, 3,500N instead of 1,000N).

In addition, the narrow width and low height of the Chainfix saddle clamps make optimum use of limited space, while the part number and correct direction of installation are clearly marked.

There are a number of variations in the Chainfix saddle clamp range.

The double saddles are optimised with locating lugs that make installation quick and easy and the strain-relief assembly secure.

Made of optimised igumid G plastic, the saddles are abrasion-free and easy on cables, working well with a wide range of sheathing materials including PVC, PUR and TPE.

Chainfix Nuggets can be used for fixing cables and hoses up to a diameter of 20mm.

This space-saving and low-cost strain relief element slides easily and quickly into the same C-profile rail with no tooling required.

Strain-relief separators are a further special solution; these combine energy chain interior division components with strain relief and are suitable for use in enclosed-style energy tubes.

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.
