Guide troughs - For long travels

Guide troughs are used in long travels according to chain type from 16–39.4 ft. They support the smooth low-friction operation of the igus® e-chain® and E-Tubes. The infeed point is at the center of the travel, and the e-chain® glides by itself on one half of the travel. For the other half, we recommend glide bars mounted in the trough, on which the e-chain® glides. igus® guide troughs have glide bars made of extremely abrasion-resistant plastic (exception RS – steel gliding partner).

Super-Aluminum guide trough

Basic version for general mechanical engineering. Heavy duty version for plant construction.

Material of the side parts: Aluminum
"Super aluminum" guide troughs - The igus® standard in guide troughs

Modular kit system in 2 versions - Basic and Heavy Duty

Very easy, universal assembly

Glide bars to protect from abrasion at high speeds

Corrosion-resistant, seawater-resistant aluminium profile

Flexible assembly - connects with support floor, independent from profile length and location of trough section interfaces

Connector - plastic with snap-on connection

Plastic glide bar made of highly molecular PE

Clamping shoe can be directly mounted on the subsurface or on C-profile - inside and outside.

Conductivity according to DIN EN 61537: Standard

Glide bars and insertable rubber profile to minimize running noise

Bracket for a secure hold even in rough operation

Fixed-end module enables the fast and simple fastening of the fixed end of the e-chains® on the super aluminum trough without drilling
