Solutions with igus® energy chain systems

A sample of energy chain cable carrier solutions, including long travel, short-unsupported, rotary, underwater, low-noise, high-acceleration, high-speed, cleanroom, vertical, and nested applications.

Long travel cable carrier

Rol-e-chain® cable carriers are used in this long travel (1,448 feet) application. This cable carrier design has integrated rollers to facilitate travel over greater distances.

 
High load cable carrier

High load application (40 pounds per foot) using System E4 cable carriers.

 
Multi-axis cable carriers

energy chain cable carriers from the triflex® series move through three dimensions in this production line.

 
Underwater cable carrier

Cable carrier used underwater.

 
Cable carrier on tooling machine: combined motion

readychain® pre-assembled cable carriers work in unison on these tooling machines

 
High speed cable carrier

Series E6.52 energy chain used in this high speed (49 feet per second) application offer a particularly quiet operation.

 
High acceleration cable carrier

This crash test unit puts energy chains through their paces: 72 feet per second speeds and 2,572 feet per second accelerations.

 
Multi-axis cable carrier on robot

Complex movements on a robot supplied by a triflex® R multi-axis cable carrier for combined movements through three dimensions.

 
Multi-axis cable carriers in cleanroom

triflex® R multi-axis cable carriers (colored white) are used in this cleanroom environment.

 
Cable carriers for large conduits

System E2 and E2 energy chains featuring extension links so that they can house large conduits, cables, hoses.

 
Cable carrier in zigzag motion

Zigzag movements from 118 feet high with a System E4/4 energy chain.

 
Low noise cable carriers

System E6 energy chains have a special construction which is ideal for high accelerations and ESD (electrostatic discharge) compatibility.

 
Unsupported cable carrier

Unsupported application using System E4/0.

 
Unsupported side-mounted cable carrier

Unsupported, side-mounted E4 Series R188 energy chain.

 
Nested cable carriers

Unsupported application, with nested System E4/0.

 
Gliding cable carrier

System E4 in a gliding application over a 1,640 feet travel.

 
Gliding side-mounted cable carrier

Gliding, side-mounted application using Series E4/4.

 
Gliding cable carrier application

Gliding application using System E4 energy chain cable carriers.

 
Vertical standing cable carrier

Vertical, standing application using Series E4/Light. Up to 20 foot travel possible.

 
Rotary cable carrier

Rotary motion application using twisterchain.

 
Zipper cable carriers side by side

energy chain cable carriers from the Zipper Chain series operate side by side.

 
Vertical hanging cable carrier

Vertical, hanging Series E4 cable carrier. Up to 131 foot travel possible.

 
Rotary movement cable carrier

Rotary movement using System E4 cable carriers.

 
Combined movements with cable carriers

Different movements using the same triflex® cable carriers are featured in this application.
