1. All-round attachment
2. Stable in the presence of large forces
due to "tongue and groove"
3. Straight running
4. NC without
5. Inner cross-section
for easy filling
6. Opening crossbars
can be folded open
on both sides
7. Can be opened
along the inner and outer radius
8. Lower weight,
better dynamic qualities
9. Quiet running due to
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 1.57 in. (40 mm) (with 1.34 lbs/ft (2.0 kg/m) fill weight, this should be observed for all types of applications.Please consult igus® if space is particurlarly restricted.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.
A= Moving end, B= Fixed end
Pitch per link: = 2.20” (56 mm)
Links per ft (m): = 5.49 (18)
For center mount applications:
Chain length = s/2 +K
The unsupported length is dependent on the additional load X-axis: Unsupported length in m FLB/FLG
Y-axis Additional load in kg/ft
Lower scale: Travel S in ft
FLB = unsupported with permitted sag
FLG = unsupported with straight upper run

Aluminum "Super Trough"- the igus® standard
The Aluminum "SuperTrough" is a modular guide trough system for long travels (when E-Chains® glide on themselves, as per sketch). Aluminum "SuperTrough" is available in low cost "basic versions" and can be upgraded for heavy duty applications. This universal usage makes it the igus® recommended new standard trough system.
