Three-piece e-chain® with many new ideas - the igus® system E3 combines small pitch, silent operation, low noise, stability, simple installation and cost efficiency. The resilient element replaces the pin-bore system as connector and prevents relative movements between the joints. For this reason, a complete freedom from wear is attained (clean room). In order to reduce the manufacturing and assembly costs, the spring clip is mounted not individually, but at a length of 10 chain links.
An elastic band links crossbars and separators and speeds up the installation
Separators on the band for the partitioning of the chain cross-section. Five separators in one band are simultaneously mounted on the crossbars
The universal strain relief can be individually adapted in the chain width. The optional fixing bracket fastens the e-chain® to the fixed end if required
You can find the right e-chain® quickly by entering concrete parameters and with the aid of a comparison table.
Opening and closing of the e-chain®. Interior separation and strain reliefs.
Applications in various industrial sectors and in the igus® test laboratory.
The cycle times are always shorter in the automation, whereas the requirements in noise reduction, service life, vibration dampening are always higher. For this wide area of small e-chain®, igus® now introduces the E3 system product range that completely caters to these requirements:
Extremely low noise operation (max. 38 dB(A)).
The resilient element replaces pins and bores as fastener
Modular chain made of three elements
Cost-efficient crossbar and separator "on the band"
Quicker and easier access to cables by the zipper system
Good stability through stable, interlocked links
Easy to shorten or lengthen
Ideal for flat cables
Accessories: Separators, integrated strain reliefs, mounting brackets
Production and processing of semiconductors
Automatic insertion machines
Materials handling technology
Printer and plotter
Clean room application
General mechanical engineering
