After 10 successful years as a cleanroom and "whisper" chain, the new generation is waiting in the wings. Aside from the tried-and-tested uses of the E6, the new generation offers additional advantages which significantly simplify operation. In addition, design changes have improved accessibility to the interior, reduced weight and made assembly easier.
You can find the right e-chain® quickly by entering concrete parameters and with the aid of a comparison table.
To protect the cables and hoses in the e-chain® even more effectively the design of the new E6.1 has been majorly advanced. Opening crossbars are very smooth and rounded, as is the transition from the chain link to the opening crossbar. All injection and marking locations were positioned outside of the cable cross-section.
For applications with max. accelerations
When minimum noise and wear are important
By using a special material, the already low abrasion of the e-chain® can be reduced even further. In many applications where cumbersome special solutions are required, a simple standard e-chain® can be used instead. A comprehensive test programme was devised and performed for both gliding and unsupported use. For many applications, the e-chains® in special materials are virtually abrasion-free. IPA tests confirm that standard igus® e-chains® meet cleanroom requirements. "Tested and certified as very good!" e-chains® for cleanroom applications demand very high wear resistance of moving parts. e-chains®, for example, must be very wear-resistant, in order to meet the normal requirements for such a sensitive environment.
