Low cost roller energy chain and guiding trough
29 January 2013
igus UK has launched a new roller energy chain, the 3500R, and a modular plastic guiding profile, guidelite, which are suitable for long travels.
The new 3500R e-chain series, which is based on the proven two-piece energy chain family E2/000, enables travels of up to 150m at speeds of up to 4m/s. It meets the needs of those applications where travel is too long for a pure sliding action, and where a robust P4 roller energy chain is over-dimensioned due its weight.
The low friction roller system is more energy-efficient than sliding systems, and is safe, silent, durable and abrasion-resistant.
The chain can be opened from the external radius and is adjustable to suit any horizontal application thanks to its modular interior separation. The modular design of the roller chain link allows the use of all widths of the standard 3500 series, from 50 to 250mm.
The 3500R can also be safely guided viathe new guidelite system, a modular, corrosion-resistant and lightweight plastic guiding profile which is easy to install.
Guidelite is suitable for applications where the speed, cycle numbers and additional load requirements are at the lower range. It can be used as a low-cost supporting trough for free-supporting applications and is a suitable partner to igus' E2/000 and E4.1 e-chain series.
