Plastic e-chain® cable carriers are more durable and longer lasting than the plastic carriers you’re used to. That’s because they’re made of highly engineered plastic materials that are put through 10 billion test cycles each year inside our 41,000ft2 test lab at our headquarters in Cologne, Germany. We also offer cable carriers pre-assembled with chainflex® flexbible cables that can reduce costs and assembly time by up to 95%. Learn more about readychain® cable carriers.
e-chain® cable carriers come in a variety of sizes ranging from 5mm inner height for the smallest installation spaces up to 350mm inner height for high loads. Find solutions for long, gliding and unsupported travels as well as for horizontal, vertical, zig zag and robotic applications. We also have open or closed systems with easy-to-open crossbars enables fast filling, and interior separators help increase the lifetime of the cables and hoses. Use the lifetime configurator to determine the service life of your e-chain® cable carrier.
