New separator system from igus revolutionises energy chain harnessing


New separator system from igus revolutionises energy chain harnessingTreotham Automation has introduced the igus E4.1L energy chain that can be harnessed up to 80% faster than other energy chains.

The E4.1L features a new type of separator system, which makes individual division of the energy chains interior even easier for the customer. It is also easy to open and fill from all sides as needed thanks to the design principles of the e-chain.

“The easy accessibility of the complete interior from both sides, the innovative separation system with new separators and one of the fastest opening mechanisms – these are the characteristics that make the E4.1L the e-chain that can be filled the fastest,” says igus vice president  of e-chains Michael Blass.

The opening mechanism of the crossbars along the inner and outer radii of the E4.1L provides fast filling with cables and hoses. These captive crossbars, which can be opened with a screwdriver, can be pivoted open to 115° and latched into their final position. If necessary, they can also be removed completely, fitted again and closed by just pressing down. The rounded edges of the crossbars and separators of the chain ensure a long service life of hoses and cables, while notches and a positioning scale enable optimum separation of the energy chain.

igus offers harnessed systems from a single source, from planning and design of the energy chain systems through to individual harnessing and on-site installation.
