E4-1L - high dynamics, light and cost effective

General purpose e-chain® for high dynamics. The E4-1 light series have been developed to combine the advantages of the E2/000 and E4-1 in one series. The strength and stability of the E4-1 system on the one hand and the easy accessibility of the E2/000 system on the other. The strength and the price of E4-1L lies between these systems and is thus a perfect alternative for you if the strength of E2/000 is insufficient and an E4-1 is over-sized.

New, particularly cable-friendly interior separation program available.

 

Pivoting and rigid KMA mounting brackets available.

 

KMA mounting brackets with circumferential fastening options.

 
e-chain® selection aids

You can find the right e-chain® quickly by entering concrete parameters and with the aid of a comparison table.

Assembly instruction

Joining, separating and opening of the e-chain® and e-tubes.

Application examples

Applications in various industrial sectors and in the igus® test laboratory.

E4-1L e-chains® with 4-part structure

Less weight, enhanced dynamics possible.

Snap-open crossbars on both sides

Snap-open along the inner and outer radius

Optimized interior-exterior dimensions ratio due to narrower outer links and optimized crossbar shape.

Inner diameter completely accessible for easy filling.

Unique side plate with tongue and groove system.

Low-priced

Short assembly time

Typical industrial sectors and applications

Low-cost alternative to E4-1

For unsupported applications

When the ruggedness of the E2/000 is inadequate, but the E4-1 is over-sized
