Treotham introduces a new energy chain from motion
plastics specialist igus that can be harnessed up to 80 per cent faster than
any other energy chain in the market, saving time and money.
The E4.1L from igus is the lightest cable-carrying
e-chain on the market, and features a new type of separator system that
simplifies individual division of the energy chain’s interior for the customer.
Easy to open and fill from all sides as needed, the
E4.1L offers excellent flexibility for harnessing, facilitated by the unique
design principles of the e-chain. Michael Blass, Vice President e-chains at
igus explains that the easy accessibility of the complete interior from both
sides, the innovative separation system with new separators, and one of the
fastest opening mechanisms are key characteristics that make the E4.1L the
e-chain that can be filled the fastest.
Some of the advantages of the new E4.1L energy chains
include ability to easily insert shelves on several levels for interior
separation; opening mechanism of the crossbars along the inner and outer radii
guaranteeing fast filling with cables and hoses; flexibility to pivot the captive
crossbars open to 115 degrees and latch into their final position; rounded
edges of the crossbars and separators of the chain ensuring a long service life
for hoses and cables; and notches and a positioning scale enabling optimum
separation of the energy chain.
igus offers a single source solution for harnessed systems,
from planning and design of the energy chain systems through to individual
harnessing and on-site installation. readychain from igus is the ideal
combination of energy chain and matching cables for moving applications, all
from a single source, with services ranging from planning and design of the
energy chain systems to individual harnessing with cables and on-site
All moving components were developed, tested and
optimised to work with each other in igus’ own test laboratory. With these
readychains, customers receive a complete and reliable pre-harnessed system
direct from the manufacturer, including a guarantee. Users can save on costs as
the number of suppliers and orders can be reduced by up to 75 percent, completely
avoiding storage and process costs.
