The igus® system for fast rotary applications as a standard product

The standard for circular movements

The rotary module consists of two circular guide elements. One part of the guide trough is attached to the static part of the system and the other part to the rotating part of the system. The fixed end of the e-chain® can be chosen freely because the rotary modules can be turned in both their inner or outer parts. The e-chains® from the E4-1 series are used for the rotary modules. 

Benefits:

  • Maximum angle of rotation 600° (depending on system)
  • Maximum angle of rotation in minimum installation space
  • Rotating speed up to 360°/s
  • Lighter and more compact than static guide troughs
  • Minimum displacement forces and maximum service life due to the split guide trough
  • Modular construction with standardised mounting variants
  • Integrated strain relief and cable guide within the guide trough

Typical application areas:General machine and plant construction, production systems, material handling, tool machines, industrial robots, medical technology, wind turbines, amusment rides, satellite telescopes

Fewer interfaces with static rotary modules

RBR  

These rotary modules consist of a static guide trough. The fixed end of the e-chain® is attached to the guide trough and the moving end to the rotating part of the machine. The e-chains® from the E4-1 series are used for the rotary modules. Static rotary modules are ideally suited for easy installation in small spaces.

Maximum angle of rotation 600° (depending on system)

Rotating speed up to 180°/s

Modular construction with standardized mounting variants

Integrated strain relief and cable guides within the guide trough


Typical application areas:
General machine and plant construction, production systems / material handling, industrial robots, medical technology, wind turbines, rides in amusement parks, satellite telescopes
