E4/light – The properties of the E4/light system have two effects: a reduced thickness of the lateral link (for all types) and a thinner crossbar (for some types: 14240, 14340, 1640). Lower weight, larger inner space and lower price besides a compromise in thickness. E4/light e-chain® attains solutions with an optimum price/performance ratio for many industrial sectors. Especially for short travels, hanging and small, standing designs. E4/light types are often the first choice.
Machine tools (enclosed E4/light tubes and open e-chains®), material processing, stone-cutting machines, wood processing machines, general mechanical engineering, vehicles, construction machines, limited application long travels.
