Micro Flizz® - A system for the safe guidance of energy, data and air

With the smallest of e-chains® master long travels – without any interruptions.

  • Compact, low noise, cost-saving overall system for a secure guidance of energy, data and air
  • Maintenance-free alternative to power line
  • The e-chain® is guided in a special slot, no gliding against each other
  • Optional control with stationary control cabinet
  • Accelerations up to 164 ft/s2 and operating speeds up to 20 ft/s
  • Quick assembly facilitated with pre-assembled systems in modular designs
  • Low space requirements
  • Also available as pre-assembled versions
  • Ball-bearing mounted carriage ensures smooth operation
  • Also with EX tested e-chain® available
    (on request)
  • Material rail MF06/MF08: aluminium anodized,
    material rail MF10: black anodized
  • Travel up to 328 ft
  • iF-Design Award

 
Application potentials for Micro flizz®

In the picture: Storage and retrieval units for high-bay warehouses, indoor cranes, industrial gates, work station equipment.
Other application areas: Sewage plants, camera systems, sliding doors, control cabinets, measuring systems, studio equipment (lighting), materials handling systems.

 
Micro flizz® technical facts

1

Separate upper and lower runs on the flizz® e-chain®,
hence less friction and reduced power consumption in motion

2

"Wings" firmly hold the e-chain® in the guide channel

3

Plastic spring enables the e-chain® to roll softy in the flizz® channel, thereby significantly reducing the noise

4

Integrated strain relief in the carriage for secure fixing of the cables

5

Universal connection through three T-slots possible

6

The e-chain® is fastened at the moving end via the moving end carriage

7

Usable in the counter direction, which means double filling or two separate travels is possible

Micro flizz® details  

Separate upper and lower runs: wings fold in in the radius. e-chain® glides freely

Fold out in the extended condition, the e-chain® firmly holds in the Micro flizz® guide channel

Energy, data, pneumatics in the smallest space. chainflex® cables are optimally designed for this application

 

Polymer spring dampens the rolling noise of the e-chain® in the flizz® channel - thus minimizes noise emission

Micro flizz® accessories: Moving end
connector for compressed air coupling

Potential application area for the micro flizz®: Storage and retrieval units, indoor cranes, etc.

Lower run moves, glides

Before: Lower run moves - glide mode. Long travels require large, stable types of e-chain®

 
Self-guiding e-chain®

Today: Micro flizz® - Small e-chain® self-guiding in the guide channel - Friction reduced by a factor of 3 compared with conventional designs.

Order example - end infeed

Micro flizz® as an end infeed version with a total length of 5000 mm, distributed over 2 channels of 2000 mm each and 1 channel with a residual length of 1000 mm

Bi = e-chains® internal width
R = bending radius [mm]
n= number of channel pieces
S = travel distance = L- 300[mm]
F = field length [mm]
L = total length [mm]
X = remaining length [mm]

This is how you work out the number of channel sections required (n):
n=L/F
Then round the result down.
